Kingsmead Book Fair

Kingsmead Book Fair

Can you capture the rich fabric of a live event – host to so many concurrent conversations – on social media in a cohesive and representative way?

As Kingsmead College’s signature annual event, we’ve been lucky enough to be involved in the Kingsmead Book Fair for several years now – and it just keeps getting better!

The 10th annual Book Fair was held in May 2022, and was a day of in-depth discussion and heated debate with a host of dynamic authors and facilitators, not to mention delicious food, drink, and a distinctly Joburg vibe.

Pomegranite built the Book Fair website, ran the social media campaign in the lead-up to the event, and live tweeted on the day of the Book Fair.

As you can see from the gorgeous gallery and impromptu interviews we did on the day, there’s a lot to love about the Book Fair! One of them being that all proceeds from the event will go towards the Kingsmead Trust for bursaries to Kingsmead College Senior School.

“Your team are my best! Can I bottle them?

Thank you so much for all you did to make KBF’22 such a success!

From the website design, endless loading of bios and pictures, changes to the programme, requests for info to your brilliant handling of the campaign on the day, somehow managing to be everywhere and cover everything so exceptionally and with zero fuss!

We absolutely love working with your team and are so grateful for your insight, support and guidance in all things web and social media. We can’t wait to do it all again next year.”

– Alex Bouche, Director of Marketing, Kingsmead College
