The Nigeria International Book Fair

This year’s Nigeria International Book Fair will hold from May 7-12, 2012, in the multi-purpose halls of the University of Lagos, Nigeria. The trade and exhibition fair is one of the biggest book events in West Africa and has become a vibrant regional platform for participants to network and access one of the largest book markets in Africa. It is also a great place for book lovers to meet authors, attend workshops and pick up the latest titles.

The NIBF will feature several special events such as a 4-day children’s programme hosted by Evans Publishers, University Press, Africana First Publishers and Macmillan Nigeria Publishers, and a party to mark the 80th birthday of Nigerian literary author Chukwuemeka Ike.

The Fair will also be the venue for the 2012 International Conference which will focus on infrastructural problems in Africa, how it affects the growth and stability of the book trade and possible solutions.
