Members of the bua-lit collective will be joined by Nomalanga Mkhize on a panel at the Open Book Festival in Cape Town next week. The event, “What are our children reading?” takes place at 12 midday on Wednesday September 4, in the Fugard Studio. In the context of the national preoccupation with the ‘reading crisis’, the panellists will address the following questions:
- What are our children reading?
- How are our children being taught to read?
- What languages are they reading in?
