Leipzig Book Fair to celebrate 25 years “Leipzig liest”

A staple in Leipzig’s events calendar and the unofficial start of the spring season is the annual Leipzig Book Fair in March (17-20 March 2016). The popular consumer fair is going to celebrate the 25th anniversary of its literary festival “Leipzig liest” (Leipzig reads). As Europe’s biggest festival of reading, it offers more than 2,800 events on the trade fair grounds and throughout the entire city. Around 2,900 participants will introduce their books. In 2016, Leipzig Book Fair finally caters for international readers by establishing an English-language reading series.
