Zintsomi Storytelling and Book Fair

March 17, 2023 @ 10:30 am - March 18, 2023 @ 5:00 pm SAST

A glossy cover, captivating illustrations and the crisp pages of a story book are the beginnings of a journey of imagination and adventure. The inaugural Zintsomi Storytelling and Book Fair empowers young children with cultural heritage, encourages them to create innovative programmes and highlights the importance of writing and storytelling.

Zintsomi believes that books are a key element on the journey to a better future.  That’s why we’re encouraging children and teens to not only read books but to also be a part of the creation process.

Join us as we explore books from various publishers, participate in master classes and watch entertaining storytelling performances.
