Time for Books
Entertaining, informative and full of variety – Leipzig liest extra, part of the Leipzig Book Fair, offers visitors the opportunity from 27 to 30 May to experience the diversity of literature after a two-year break due to the pandemic, partly via live stream and partly in person. For four days across 80 locations in Leipzig, the spotlights will be on books, their creators and the inspiring power they hold. At over 350 readings, talks and debates by authors from Germany and abroad taking place live in Leipzig, new books for readers young and old will be unveiled, debates on current political and socio-political issues will be held and exciting entertainment will be on offer. Authors who are unable to attend in person will be connected via live stream. At long last for our visitors, certain venues with outdoor areas will be opening their doors again to the public in accordance with the regulations in force, enabling personal encounters between reading fans and authors. You can find the programme at www.leipziger-buchmesse.de. where information on in-person, digital and hybrid events is updated daily. All events at Leipzig liest extra will also be streamed free of charge via the website www.leipziger-buchmesse.de.
