The Goethe-Institut at
Frankfurter Buchmesse 2018
Dear Friends of Literature,
Again this year, the Frankfurt Book Fair offers an excellent opportunity to look at the work of the Goethe-Institut worldwide from a domestic perspective and to present it to the German audience for discussion. Every year many German-speaking authors, translators and illustrators travel to various locations for the Goethe-Institut to present German-language literature worldwide in readings, at festivals, book fairs and residencies.
With our funding programmes, we were again able to support the translation of 237 titles in 36 languages in 2017. After four years of successful cooperation with the Arab world, from 2019 our translation programme Litrix.de will devote itself to rendering German-language literature in Greek.
On the stages of the Frankfurt Book Fair, we would like to give you a vivid impression of the diverse topics, formats and people with whom we work at our international locations.
We look forward to seeing you and hope you have many exciting encounters!
