The Magic Tent

The National Book Week Magic Tent offers words and sights that will delight your senses. All are invited to attend events in the Tent, from toddlers to grandparents, and to revel in the affirmative power of books and reading − for the first time or the thousandth time.

Session for the Visually Impaired:
An interactive presentation by The South African Library for the Blind, Tactile Picture Books: A Positive Reading Experience For Pre-School Children Who Are Blind And Visually Impaired, provides a good introduction to tactile books and their purpose. Both sighted and visually impaired children and families will enjoy the presentations.

Entry to The Magic Tent is free.
