Programme 2017

“Books are a uniquely portable magic- Stephen King

9:00 am – 3:00 pm

For schools by Invitation - The Neev Literature Festival will feature what will likely be the largest exhibition of children’s books ever seen in the city. This exhibition is carefully curated to expose children to new authors, titles and genres, and to complement scheduled workshops, panel discussions, and author talks. Children and parents will find enriching and challenging resources for children of all ages from pre-schoolers to pre-university students.

Booksellers and publishers will bring significant and renowned titles to offer the most balanced representation of books across genres, languages, themes and reading levels. The exhibition will feature reading spaces and activity spaces to engage and motivate its prime audience — children – into sampling and eventually reading beyond the usually well-marketed though not always enriching literature.
