Buchmesse Frankfurt

BOOKFEST – when books take over the city

Readings from best sellers at the exhibition centre; poetry slams, taste tests and roundtable discussions staged in bars and cultural institutes all round the city – that’s the BOOKFEST, the Frankfurt Book Fair’s international festival of literature, stories and ideas! From 16 to 20 October 2019, you will find fascinating events with a literary theme unfolding in the most unlikely venues. Sure to be among this year’s highlights is the appearance by Jo Nesbø, the Norwegian writer of crime, mystery and children’s fiction, on 17 October.
