DISD @ Frankfurt Book Fair

November 04 2021

Under the motto Reconnect, the Frankfurt Book Fair took place at the end of October. Our librarians Ms. Scherneck and Ms. Krauser took the opportunity to connect with many publishers and authors.

The Frankfurt Book Fair had thousands of new publications to offer again this year. But who is supposed to read it all, and how do you find the best reads?

Don't worry our two librarians Mrs. Scherneck and Mrs. Krauser gave their all to select and purchase the latest and in some cases award-winning works for the Bibliothopia and LeseOase. They ordered a total of 700 books for our secondary and elementary school libraries. A blessing for the promotion of reading and the German language at DISD.

Some of the new books are even signed by the authors. For example, "Angekommen" by Bülent Ceylan, "Glitter-Schnitter" by Sven Regener or "Poesie und Pandemie" by Safiye Can.

The Frankfurt Book Fair is the largest in the world and has always been a meeting place for book lovers and librarians. For our two librarians, it was an important "meeting place" with organizations (for example, the Central Office for Schools Abroad), publishers and authors, in addition to book acquisitions.

So things are getting exciting for our next book week at Primary School and Secondary School in March 2022. This much we can already reveal. We are in contact and negotiations with various cultural institutions to invite you one of the probably funniest authors.
