A real treat for true fans: Frankfurter Buchmesse's very first Sci-Fi Lounge.
A world of literature without science fiction? It would be as lifeless as Planet Earth without oxygen.
The new Sci-Fi Lounge at Frankfurter Buchmesse gives this important industry genre the spotlight it deserves.
We have dedicated the lounge to none other than the bestselling SF author Ursula K. Le Guin (1929-2018) - in her memory and out of deep admiration. She left her mark on science fiction literature like no other writer. In many of her novels, she created breath-taking worlds that broke out of the traditional constraints of the genre, transforming stereotypes like the "male hero". Her characters are driven by a mission - and by a deep humanity.
The Ursula Lounge - in the middle of the Frankfurt Pavilion, the new landmark of Frankfurter Buchmesse -will serve as the central meeting point for all science fiction enthusiasts.
"You are free. All you have is what you are, and what you give."
Ursula: The Science-Fiction-Lounge.
