More Books, in more hands

The Literary District is a collective project that aims to showcase our neighbourhood’s culture. Centred around the city’s main library, the area is home to an abundance of book sellers, places of interest and historic landmarks. 

There are over 70 booksellers in our neighbourhood – some with traditional shop fronts, some selling from trestle tables, and some with stacks spread out on picnic blankets on the pavement. Jozi loves to read, and this is the place to do it. 


We are all about celebrating South Africa’s rich literary culture – its past, its present, and its future.
