Frankfurt Book Fair

19-23 October

From Wednesday October 19 to Sunday 23 October, the 2022 edition of the Frankfurter Buchmesse, world’s largest book fair, will take place. The Dutch Foundation for Literature has a stand at Hall 4.0 C 60.

This year’s theme is “Translate, Transfer, Transform”. The fair is dedicated to an exchange of ideas and understanding through and beyond languages and culture.

The Guest of Honour for the 2022 edition is Spain. Its motto is “Creatividad desbordante” in Spanish. From fiction to poetry, children’s books to comics, and essays to audio books: visitors will encounter the range of literature from Spain – including the very unique literatures from the Catalan, Galician and Basque language regions.

The Dutch Foundation for Literature will be represented by Victor Schiferli (fiction, poetry and classics), Agnes Vogt (children’s and young adult literature), Mireille Berman (non-fiction), Alexandra Koch (Schwob), Tiziano Perez (fiction) and Barbara den Ouden (fiction and graphic novels).
