Following the phenomenal success of its second year, Abantu Book Festival is excited to announce the line-up for its third edition, scheduled for 6-9 December 2018.
The festival was founded and is curated as a healing project for black people. Based in Soweto, Abantu Book Festival has indeed become a sanctuary for its participants and requests that this sanctity be respected.

Tickets will be on sale in November.
