Frankfurter Buchmesse 2019: 16 – 20 October 2019
Guest of Honour 2019 is NORWAY

Frankfurter Buchmesse is the largest event in the publishing industry, the largest book show in the world and the most popular festival for literature lovers.
As a trading centre for worldwide licenses, we are a mandatory event for decision-makers from the publishing and content world and a platform for publishers, authors and the media world. We ensure the international presence of German-language literature and network publishers worldwide. 

Every year Frankfurter Buchmesse welcomes a different country as its Guest of Honour. The presence of a country as Guest of Honour gives the Frankfurter Buchmesse a new character every year. For the Guest of Honour itself, this appearance is of double importance: not only does the country’s literature and culture always garner tremendous attention, but its publishing industry also becomes the focus of the largest international event in the book and media world. The Guest of Honour’s presentation is a magnet for audiences and a significant hook for the media in its coverage.
The Guest of Honour of Frankfurter Buchmesse 2019 is Norway –a land of great Literature: from the classics of Henrik Ibsen and Knut Hamsun to the modern best-sellers of Karl Ove Knausgård and Jo Nesbø. Norwegians read more than any other European nationality, and the country has produced three winners of the Nobel Prize for Literature. Norway’s slogan as Guest of Honour at the Frankfurter Buchmesse 2019 is ‘The Dream We Carry’. The words derive from the poem ‘It Is That Dream’ by the much loved Norwegian poet Olav H. Hauge (1908–94).
