Spain presents a powerful and diverse literary program for the days of the celebration, from October 20 to 24, in which Canada will take the witness as the next Guest of Honor in the 2022 edition. Spain's participation in the Book Fair of Frankfurt 2022 is based on five pillars: bibliodiversity, innovation, linguistic plurality, gender equality and sustainability.
With a design according to the motto and visual identity of ‘Spain Guest of Honor’, the new website SpainFrankfurt2022.com will offer almost thirty meetings with more than 70 protagonists of the Spanish publishing and literary scene in a hybrid format. Some will take place before the Fair, while others will be held live via streaming from Madrid and Frankfurt. The project's accounts on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook will also offer up-to-date information.
This program is organized by the Directorate General for Books (Ministry of Culture and Sports) and Spanish Cultural Action (AC / E), in collaboration with the Federation of the Publishers Guild of Spain.
The Frankfurt Book Fair (Frankfurter Buchmesse) is the world's most important market for print and digital content. It is also an extraordinary social and cultural event. Every October, editors, publishing experts, writers, creative professionals and fans come from all over the world to network, have conversations, negotiate, make decisions, be amazed and celebrate the book and the reading. It is then that Frankfurt becomes the focus of the world's media and publishing industries, bringing leading innovative technologies and world literature at your fingertips.
