Review of #Jozisbbf2016

It was an honour to be part of #Jozisbbf2016, which was a superb event thanks to you and your Team! What struck me the most was that it was the first literary event which felt like ‘our space for our voices’ (that doesn’t mean that our multi-cultural society wasn’t well represented).  We had a beautiful mix of artists and ethnicities. It’s been exactly a week since the ‘first’ and I can only think that #Jozisbbf will take its place on the map of literary events as it grows. My highlight was meeting my hero Mr Ahmed Essop (Fangirl moment :))

 

Many thanks
Yours in reading
