The 19th Nairobi International Bookfair fair will be held from 21st to 25th September2016 at the Sarit Centre Expo Hall Westland’s Nairobi, Kenya.

The Bookfair is organized by the Kenya Publishers Association. Kenya Publishers Association believes that this year the Bookfair will be like no other. Last year we had more than twenty two thousand (22,000) visitors to the bookfair and this year we expect more.

Books whether creative works or factual texts, serve as a reflection of the society from which the writers are drawn. It is therefore our duty to ensure that society is able to communicate effectively on issues that confront it and do so through books and to enhance a peaceful coexistence amongst each other.
