Frankfurt Book Fair
From: 2013.10.10 To: 2013.10.14
Book lovers won't find a quiet place to read during one of the world's largest book fairs, but they will enjoy talking to likeminded book lovers about what's happening, who is writing what, and where books are going. Annually, there are approximately 300,000 literature fans that participate in the debates, readings and networking seminars at Frankfurt's Messe. The organizers claim the aim is to promote "new developments and trends in literature, media and science," however anyone who goes knows it is partly to meet and honor industry members. Indeed an artistic highlight is the awarding of the Peace Prize of a German-language book. That said, there is plenty of time to talk about the future of the media and medium. Past that, Frankfurt is an open book for travelers, a city of commerce and trade as well as rich history.
