HospiceWits and Polofields Crossing team up for inaugural annual Book Fair

Books have always been a staple of HospiceWits shops in Johannesburg, with many people regularly dropping by to see which new pre-loved publications are gracing the shelves.

In an effort to expand this fundraising effort further, HospiceWits has now teamed up with the Polofields Crossing shopping centre in Waterfall for the first-ever annual Polofields Crossing Book Fair, set to be held at Polofields Crossing on 20 and 21 March 2021.

Promising to feature our largest collection of books yet, a special book tent outside Polofields Crossing will be erected for this weekend in celebration of the written word. Featuring everything from romance novels to science fiction, the Polofields Crossing Book Fair will have something for every reader. Whether you prefer fiction or non-fiction, self-help or history, poetry or prose, there’s sure to be something to satisfy your literary cravings among the wide variety of books on offer – and at great prices, too.

Adding to the festivities, Hot 91.9 FM and Mark Pilgrim will also be joining the reading revelry.

HospiceWits cordially invites all our loyal backers to support this effort by dropping by on Saturday and Sunday. We will also be accepting book donations – please feel free to bring along any pre-loved reading material when you come to replenish your stock!

Your contribution is invaluable, and enables HospiceWits to continue providing palliative care and support to the many terminal patients and their families that we serve across Johannesburg.

Visit the Polofields Crossing Book Fair in the book tent outside the centre from 09:00 to 15:00 on Saturday, 20 March and Sunday, 21 March, and page through some of the literary jewels on offer.

Just so we’re on the same page, though: take care to arrive early, before all the good stuff is sold! Get your caffeine fix from Manaka Coffee, and stock up on snacks at SuperSpar Polofields Crossing – we can’t wait to welcome you into this wonderland of words!
