Below are links to the websites – and Facebook pages, where available (click on thelogo) – of organizations (other than publishers), groups, and associations that are supportive of book and journal publishing, the ‘book chain’, and reading promotion in sub-Saharan Africa. A number of dealers and suppliers of African-published books are also included, as are links to some of the major (Pan-African) book prizes and awards, book fairs, and other book promotional events.

We only include organizations and associations that have been verified to be currently active, but please note that the websites of a number of African book trade organizations tend to suffer from frequent downtime.

Links last updated 16 August 2017.
