The international festival of books at home
Every year in October, culture enthusiasts from all over the world celebrate the BOOKFEST together – the big international cultural festival of Frankfurter Buchmesse.
From bestseller events with world-famous authors* to discussion rounds, workshops and performances. This year, BOOKFEST will take place physically as BOOKFEST city and for the first time virtually as BOOKFEST digital.
On Saturday, 17 October 2020, BOOKFEST digital will broadcast a multi-faceted programme throughout the day. It will present, among others: Elizabeth Gilbert, Margaret Atwood, Ayad Akhtar, Eliot Weinberger, Kirsten Boie, Don Winslow, Olga Grjasnowa, Slavoj Žižek, Håkan Nesser, Jodi Kantor & Megan Twohey, Edward Snowden, Jamie Oliver.
Canada is preparing a series of virtual programme elements that will show the diversity, creativity and uniqueness of the Canadian literary and cultural scene. The future host countries Spain and Slovenia will also be represented in both BOOKFEST programme formats. The former Guest of Honour countries Norway and Georgia will also present famous and popular authors from their countries.
BOOKFEST digital will be livestreamed on YouTube and buchmesse.de – along with selected highlights on Facebook.
