Gaborone Book Festival

The Gaborone Book Festival Trust (GBF) is a non-profit organisation and was founded in late 2017 by sisters, Keikantse and Kenanao Phele, who are passionate readers and wanted to share their love for reading with Batswana. Our main objective is to encourage people of all ages to read for pleasure, with a keen focus on promoting engagement with the literary works of authors and storytellers from Botswana, as well as those from other African countries. Gaborone Book Festival is the only existing book festival in Botswana that further offers various literary platforms throughout the year apart from its flagship September book festival.
