Buchmetropolen 7: International Promotion of Literature

Panel discussion / discussion

A series of online events in German and Polish jointly organised by the Goethe-Institut Warsaw, Polish Chamber of Books and Frankfurter Buchmesse. At the events, experts from both or more countries discuss topical issues facing the book and publishing industry, followed by a Q&A.


Since 1971, the Nobel Prize in Literature has been awarded to authors writing in seventeen different languages. Anglophone writers predominate, followed (by a wide margin) by authors writing in German and Spanish. What can we do to ensure works from all countries of the world can reach far-flung readerships, allowing them to discover the full spectrum of literature from different authors and cultures? Experts from three countries discuss success stories and problems in this area.
