NATIONAL BOOK WEEK " PASSPORT TO TOMORROW"
Nkowa-Nkowa - South Africa commemorates National Book Week every ﬁrst week of September to celebrate books and reading. This year it takes place from 7 to 13 September, under the theme “Passport to Tomorrow”. The theme is ﬁt-for-purpose for the next decade as we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic towards the promise of a better tomorrow. It is interpretive, and its appeal lies not in the statement itself, but in the way it is constructed by the reader, for self.
National Book Week is an important initiative in encouraging the nation to value reading as a fun and pleasurable activity and to showcase how reading can easily be incorporated into one’s daily lifestyle.The annual campaign is aimed at creating an interest in reading through fun, light activities related to reading and books. It focuses on promoting leisure reading, i.e. reading for entertainment, enjoyment and information.
