Kenyan Indie Authors Gift Readers with a Gift to Open Again and Again
Kenyan Indie Authors Gift Readers with a Gift to Open Again and Again

“ ‘A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies,’ said Jojen. ‘The man who never reads lives only one’ ” wrote George R R Martin in the A Dance with Dragons, Book #5 of his A Song of Ice and Fire series, famously the almost cultic Game of Thrones TV series.

Readers in Nairobi were treated to a fun and fair book fest on 25 and 26 June, 2021 at the Alliance Française de Nairobi by independently published authors. As the writer Garrison Keillor says, “A book is a gift you can open again and again”, the NYrobi Book Fest did gift readers.

The main purpose of a book fair is not to sell books but it offers a rare opportunity to analyse the kind of readers who visit, which books are being published, what advances have been made in the publishing industry, and get to know what readers are reading. However, books were sold, and authors got new readers.
