Virtual Frankfurt Book Fair launches with message from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau 

The special online edition of the Frankfurt Book Fair kicked off today with a ceremony featuring a video message from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

In July, Frankfurt organizers announced that Canada’s guest of honour role would be officially postponed to 2021, and be replaced this year with a condensed online program in keeping with COVID-19 safety measures. On Oct. 17, Frankfurt’s Bookfest Digital will feature an array of international literary talent, including several Canadian authors. The free programming includes talks with Kim Thúy, David A. Robertson, Sydney Smith, and Catherine Hernandez, alongside events with Jamie Oliver, Edward Snowden, Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey, Peter Wohlleben, and Ibram X. Kendi.
