Books and children
Zimbabwe International Book Fair Trust, Apr 1, 1998 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 260 pages
The annual Zimbabwe International Book Fair is the cross-roads for all parts of the African book communities. The Indaba preceding the book fair has become the meeting place for interested parties from Africa, Europe, the US and the rest of the developing world. The 1998 theme of the fair was "Books and Children", and this was the theme of the Indaba. These fifty-six papers, report-backs and discussions are all presentations or events at the 1998 Fair. The over-riding message is that there is a reading culture in Africa, but a shortage of books wanted and needed by children in Africa. The papers are grouped in five parts: those from the plenary sessions; Policy; Children's Literature; Scholarship and Research; and Access and Technology.
