Frankfurt Moves Canada to Guest of Honor 2021

Canada’s presentation as Guest of Honor at Frankfurt Book Fair 2020 has been postponed until 2021. Canada will have also have virtual presence at the online portion of this year's book fair.

The countries scheduled to be the Guest of Honor at Frankfurt in subsequent years, including Spain, Slovenia and Italy, have agreed to postpone their own presentations by one year. 

“We would like to thank the Guest of Honor committees, publishers associations and the authorities in Spain, Slovenia and Italy who, out of solidarity with Canada, have agreed to postpone their appearances in Frankfurt for another year," said Juergen Boos, director of the book fair. "This year has presented us all with major challenges, and we’ve seen the international book community come together in response. This cooperation between Frankfurter Buchmesse’s confirmed Guest of Honor countries is just one of many examples.”
