We’re going to Frankfurt Book Fair

Hey,

I hope you’re having a relaxing weekend. Miss Treegarden and I have great news for you! In a few days, we’ll head north to attend the largest book fair in the world – Frankfurt Book Fair!

Miss Treegarden and I are both book fair first-timers and we are pretty excited by now. We’ve got months of preparation lying behind us and we hope we can bring back lots of pictures and stories. Of course, we will look out for new and upcoming books that could be of interest to you (and us 😀 ) and we hope to get to meet and talk to many interesting people!

Miss Treegarden found out that one of her favorite authors will be at the book fair and I already found my Mecca in Hall 8.0 which is the International Hall. That’s where most of the English-language publishers are. It will be a pretty intense trip with only two days time to explore hundreds of booths and thousands of books.

We still got a few days left and we want to know: Is there anything you’d like to know about Frankfurt Book Fair that we can find out while we are there? Please tell us. We’ll try to help!

  1. Aahhh, I’ve heard so much about this fair, so you two should feel incredibly lucky to be able to go! I don’t know which authors are going there, though, but that doesn’t take any of the fun away. Book fairs are already fun in and of themselves. 🙂 I don’t really have anything in particular I want to know, but: Just go, and I hope you have an amazing time there! (Pack band-aids for blisters!)

    1. Cecilia Ahern is the only author that seems to be popular enough to be known all over the world. Daniel Kehlmann will also be there but I don’t know if he really is that well-known beyond the German-speaking world. But as you say, you don’t have to have lots of famous authors for a book fair to be awesome.
      Thanks for reminding me of band-aids! We might need them 😉
