The 2018 Kingsmead book fair delivered on it's promise for bigger and better.
The annual event which hosts authors, bookworms and students discusses book themes and authors give insights into their work.
The sessions allowed for the audience to ask authors about their books, what they left out and why they decided to write on certain topics.
The book fair also had the 702 Open Line where Bongani Bingwa, Karima Brown, Joanne Joseph, Eusebius McKaiser and Jacques Pauw discussed the role of media and investigative journalists in uncovering corruption in the country.
Here is a recap in tweets...

Had such a great time at the #KingsmeadBookFair. So great to be surrounded by books, and writers of books, and conversations about books and people who love books and things that go with books, like wine and ice cream and more books. Can't wait for next year. #KBF18— Jem Glendinning (@jemathome) May 12, 2018
