Exclusive Books HomeBru Promotion

Every year Exclusive Books runs a promotion called HOMEBRU.  It is a Proudly South African list of books and writers, selected by store managers during May through to June (1 May to 27 June 2012). This promotion is a celebbration of everything local; authors and writing - something I tend to overlook as a reader: Local Talent.
'Homebru is about holding a mirror up to the SA publishing scene and this year is no different. The Homebru titles capture the deep and wide range of topics which captures the diversity and polarity of South Africa beautifully' says Rene Brophy, Marketing and Publicity Manager for Exclusive Books

There are 28 books on the Homebru list which represent 28 unique perspectives of South Africa including a strong representation of Afrikaans titles, is what it says in the Press Release.  I have to agree.  As an ex-Exclusive Books Bookseller, I have seen such great titles on this promotion.  How could I not share these local reads with you ...

I have listed all 28 titles below.
