Heroe Book Fair is thrilled to announce an exciting partnership with Soma Nami Books to bring you the 2nd edition of the fair to be held from May 5th-7th, 2022 at the Close The Gap Hub Mombasa with the theme, Emancipation, see here. This partnership is intended to introduce a new, interactive dimension to the Book Fair experience, as debate and discussion are equally at the heart of the fair.

Soma Nami Books is a Nairobi based book hub founded by Muthoni Muiruri and Wendy Njoroge, two literary activists and enthusiasts whose passion stems from their commitment to spotlighting and centering African narratives and amplifying African stories, ideas and aspirations. Soma Nami Books runs an African based bookstore with a justified bias towards stocking books written by people from the African continent, the African diaspora and Women, a Book Café forum geared towards community engagement, a Book Club and a Book Box Subscription Service. 

Mark your calendars for a couple of days of exciting literary activities during the fair.
