6 – 9 September 2018


The Accra International Book Festival (AIBF) announces the programme for this year’s event scheduled for September. This year’s theme is Amplify. We will be exploring how writers can create content that amplifies historically marginalised voices; that provides a crucial platform to help amplify the voices and concerns of victims; that amplifies awareness of campaign and that amplifies the ideas and energy of their people.
