The ZIBFA interim chair, executive board member Memory Chirere, said; "On behalf of the Zimbabwe International Book Fair Association (ZIBFA) General Council and Executive Board, we wish to advise that the 2019 edition of the Masvingo Book Fair that had been postponed, due to the fact that the 25th of October 2019 had been declared a public holiday in respect of the National Anti-Sanctions programme, has now been rescheduled to take place on Wednesday 6 November to Thursday 7 November 2019 from 0900 to 1700 hours at Masvingo Civic Centre Hall."

Chirere extended her invitation to headmasters, teachers, parents, schoolchildren, writers, editors, printers, publishers, booksellers and librarians in the Masvingo region to visit this unique Masvingo Book Fair exhibition.

She also extended a warm welcome to members of the general public to visit the Masvingo Book Fair to discover the opportunities that lie in books for further learning and knowledge acquisition.
