Frankfurt Opens Applications, Affirms Fair Will Proceed

The Frankfurt Book Fair, scheduled for October 14–18, has started soliciting applications for its fellowship program for professionals and its invitation program for publishers from developing markets. This year the fair is focusing on inviting publishers of young adult literature. Applications are due April 30.

In an email, the fair's organizers made it clear they expected the fair to proceed as planned. They wrote, "Coronavirus has turned the world upside down. While colleagues are settling down in their home offices, public life seems to be coming to a standstill, and internet activity has never been higher. The Frankfurter Buchmesse team is now working from home, but we still expect the fair to take place this coming October."
