Homebru: Meet South African authors in their own words
Celebrating South African authors, Exclusive Books' annual Homebru campaign is back! Running till the end of July under the theme 'Meet South African authors in their own words', this year the aim is to make local authors the heroes and celebrate the pens behind the text.
Exclusive Books has chosen books across a wide range of genres – reflective of the current growing publishing of local writing. From cookery to biographies, fiction, current affairs, inspirational and children’s books are all covered in the selection.
“Local writing and writers get substantial attention all year long – both in our stores and in all Exclusive Books campaigns. We make every effort to ensure that locally produced and written books feature prominently on general promotions and in-store book displays. But Homebru is our opportunity to focus solely on this central part of our range. And because authors are home-based, we really can make the most of ‘meeting them, in their own words." - Batya Bricker, Exclusive Books' general manager
