Cape Town Book Fair Canceled Until 2012

There will be no Cape Town Book Fair this year. The organizers explained in a website announcement: “The reason for this new move is that publishers in South Africa have voiced their support for a bi-annual Fair, starting in 2012.”

Last year, the event was held at the Cape Town International Conference Centre (CTICC). It boasted over 240 events, 273 exhibitors, and 33,488 visitors. The next festival is scheduled for June 12th-14th, 2012.

In addition, iafrica.com theorized that the organizer scrapped the event because only four out of South Africa’s “Big Six” publishers  (NB, Jonathan Ball, Jacana, and Pan Macmillan) participated in the 2010 book fair.
