Canada’s Guest of Honour Role at 2020 Frankfurt Book Fair Postponed

From: Canadian Heritage

Canadian creativity shines bright, and the Government of Canada believes in providing our Canadian authors, illustrators and creators with the best opportunities to share their creativity with the world. The Frankfurt Book Fair provides Canadian creators with an unequaled opportunity to feature their work at the world’s largest trade fair for books. We want our creators to have the largest stage possible on which to shine, and it is with that in mind that Canada and the Frankfurter Buchmesse have agreed to postpone featuring Canada as Guest of Honour country until the 2021 Frankfurt Book Fair.

Canada would like to thank the Frankfurt Book Fair and the three upcoming Guest of Honour countries-Spain, Slovenia and Italy-who have all agreed to postpone their own country spotlights by a year in order to facilitate this adjustment.
