The Knowledge Train Called ‘’Campus Book Fair’’


CAMPUS BOOK FAIR (CBF) is an initiative of HETURA BOOKS COMPANY LIMITED, Ghana’s fastest growing publishing brand. It is an event organized on the various tertiary campuses in the country where different genre of books from tried and tested authors are displayed for the student community to choose from at very affordable prices.

The event is characterized with sights and sounds of jingles of some selected titles and brief interactive sessions between CBF volunteers and the readers who approach our stands. There is also intermittent give-aways to students or anyone from the reading community who gets a book from our stands. Knowledge is the commodity we trade in at CBF and we do it with fun.

The CBF train started its engine from the little office of Hetura Books Company Limited and headed straight to the campus of the Central University College in Miotso on the 11th November, 2015. The train emptied itself of the various books it brought to the students of Central University College. The event lasted for only a day and the response from the students was massive. We engaged about a 1800 students at our various stands. By the time the train was leaving, “come back soon” were the words that echoed from the mouth of the students of Central University College.
What a way to end 2015!


The early mornings of 8th February, 2016 welcomed the CBF train to the campus of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) for infectious and hilarious knowledge euphoria ever to hit the school. The train as usual displayed the various books at its disposal to the student community in KNUST. The students were elated with the event, some who could not find their preferred titles at our stands were also shocked at the provision of a request form made available for them, with which the CBF team got their titles for them later at no extra cost. That is reading made easy. The evenings of 13th February, 2016, saw the CBF train folding up to its next destination. As the train leaves KNUST, smiles and continuity was the image imprinted on the faces of almost all students that had a chance to interact one way or the other with us at our various stands.

And now, it’s time for another knowledge revolution, and this time round it’s on the campus of our very own premier university, University of Ghana, Legon. CBF is about to stage a coup against ‘’ignorance’’ among the student community. This comes off from the 9th to 11th of March, 2016. Come along and let’s make reading exciting. Tell a friend to tell a friend, to invite a friend, colleague, brother and a sister.

One thing makes CBF exciting. Find all genres of books at our stands; from leadership books, capacity-building books, relationship, Christian books, political books, autobiographies, etc.

Visit our stands on the said date at the SRC union building, the walk way around Mensah Sabbah Annexes on your way to the night market.
