Poetry Collection stores have been running a fund-raiser to counteract illiteracy.  We were delighted to make up book strings for The Shaw Sisters who supplied them to stores countrywide for this campaign. 

The promotion has been running since early July and is nearing an end now, so I was pleased to finally get to the only Poetry Store in KZN at the buzzing Midlands Mall this weekend.

 

I am a shy photographer and so appreciated the friendly and interested response from the manager and staff who happily let me click away.

 We enjoyed browsing around the store.  Shoppers in other parts of South Africa have been enjoying dedicated Poetry Stores for a while now, and I believe we can look forward to some more opening closer to our KZN home soon.

Lovely to think that these old recycled books could be part of a new momentum to help more people to read by bringing attention and encouraging donations to Ikamva Labantu
