Programme of events follows 'Francfort en francais' last year

The institut francais is following up its "Francfort en francais" Guest of Honour programme at the 2017 Frankfurt Book Fair with further events at the fair this year.

Some 15 French-speaking authors from round the world will take part in discussions and present their books in Frankfurt. They include Frederic Beigbeder, Olivier Guez, Jerome Leroy, Achille Mbembe, Maryam Madjidi and Kettly Mars. A catalogue will present a selection of 111 new publications of French-speaking literature in German translation from the second half of 2018.

At an event titled "My Summer with the French", three German-speaking authors will discuss their favourite works of French contemporary literature. As part of the Arts-plus programme, four French editors will present their ideas for "TV series of tomorrow", and an international marketplace for literary film adaptions at the Cannes Film Festival will be announced.
