Addis Book Festival hosted by ER & the Ethiopian Writers Association

On March 5th & 6th, Ethiopia Reads organized and participated in a two-day book festival in the Shiro Meda district of Addis Ababa, in partnership with the Ethiopian Writers Association.

The festival's slogan:
Nu Enanbebe ("Come, Lets Read!")

This was a community event for children and families, featuring games, puzzles, and books, where students, parents, teachers and neighbors all came together in the capitol to celebrate reading and literacy.

Highlights included our mini-library, a story corner where books were read aloud to the children, and the festival even included a small theater and movie time for the kids!
