Welcome to New Readers Publishers

The office of the New Readers Publishers will be closed from 16 December 2015 until 11 January 2016. Emailed orders and enquiries will be attended to after that date. Thank you for your patience.

New Readers Publishers was a non-profit publishing project based in the Centre for Adult Education at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in Durban. It aimed to promote reading and literacy by publishing a range of easy to read books in all South African languages and by strengthening the capacity of educators and librarians and aspiring authors, illustrators and editors.This it did successfully for 23 years. 

At the end of 2014, affected by institutional challenges, the project ceased publishing and printing new books. The remaining stocks were relocated to the Pietermaritzburg office of the Centre for Adult Education, and limited numbers of New Readers Publishers books are still available. Please see the updated contact details on this website to make enquiries about orders.
