Discover our digital networking format The Hof
At The Hof, publishing professionals, authors and literature enthusiasts from different fields and nations have been meeting since 2020 to experience exclusive interview guests live, discuss exciting topics and meet old friends and make new contacts in a relaxed atmosphere with live music.
This is the topic we will be addressing together with you and renowned industry experts on 5 October: New Adult, a fast-growing new genre aimed at an often overlooked target group - people in their 20s and 30s. Recently, publishers such as the German publishing house Bastei Lübbe have unleashed a veritable onslaught of New Adult bestsellers. Learn in The Hof Session what triggered the hype, why the genre is now developing so successfully and get tips & tricks for your sales and marketing strategies!
