FRANKFURTER BUCHMESSE 2020
FRANKFURT EXTENDS THE BOOKFEST DEADLINE
 
Be part of BOOKFEST 2020

Apply by 31 May to host an event or make your location part of the community.
From 14-18 October, the entire city of Frankfurt becomes an enthusiastic extension of Frankfurter Buchmesse. The media event of the year attracts thousands of visitors, exhibitors, artists, stars and journalists. One of the most exciting event programmes is BOOKFEST. This international festival takes place in attractive locations throughout the city each evening after the book fair ends. Our motto: BIGGER, BETTER, BOOKFEST. From bestseller readings at the fair in Frankfurt, to poetry slams, tastings and discussion rounds in Frankfurt bars and cultural institutions: every year in October, everything in Frankfurt revolves around literature, inspiration and exciting encounters. Over five days, publishing experts, writers, artists and culture enthusiasts from all over the world meet to celebrate the BOOKFEST together.
The key theme, you’ll recall, is “Brave Voices for a New Decade,” and the intent is to give writers with “courageous voices” a forum, particularly with relevance to current events.
