Leipzig Book Fair / Festival of literature Leipzig liest
March in Leipzig is individualized by reading.
The Leipzig Book Fair is the second largest book fair in Germany after Frankfurt.
But it is the first large trade meeting of the year in Leipzig so it plays an important role in the market and is often where new publications are first presented.
Writers, readers and publishers meet to update their information, engage in exchange and discover what is new.
Leipzig Book Fair is the most important get-together in the spring for the book and media industry, connecting readers with authors, publishers and media companies from Germany and around the world.
They all visit Leipzig to experience a diversity of literature, discover innovations and gain new perspectives.
Leipzig Book Fair covers a diverse range of topics and trends in fiction, non-fiction and specialist literature.
There is a special focus on a single host country each year.
Focus Education presents the latest educational opportunities for all age groups, with a focus on literacy for the book fair’s youngest visitors.
The conference program at Leipzig Book Fair provides opportunities for active participation and exchange through workshops and discussions for teachers, booksellers and authors.
