Bridge Books

Downtown Joburg's newest book store sells new and second-hand books with a focus on works by South African and African writers. There's also a coffee bar downstairs and plenty of place to sit and read, making for an inviting atmosphere. The shop is located on the second level of a grand old building which used to be a bank and is in itself worth a visit just to admire the architecture. The shop runs various events including the Friday lunch time Brown Bag Lunch Book Club and Unabridged, a series of writing workshops helping new writers develop their skills and showing them how to get published.
