Frankfurter Buchmesse is the most important industry event in the publishing world. Every year around 300,000 visitors take part in it. Among them there will be the Polish Book Institute, which organizes the Polish stand. The honorary guest of this year’s edition is Norway. The official press conference on the occasion of the opening of the fair was attended by the Nobel Prize winner Olga Tokarczuk.
Every year the Polish Book Institute prepares the New Books from Poland catalogue for publishers and translators around the world, presenting the best books from recent years, as well as the most interesting phenomena in contemporary Polish literature, and timeless classics. The premiere of the catalogue is in line with the industry calendar, as it coincides with the International Book Fair in Frankfurt, the most important event in the publishing industry in the world.
In Greece, a translation of Pszczoły (‘The Book of Bees’) was published. The book was translated by Agnieszka Barbara Czerwińska and Marianna Psychalou. The publication of the book by Piotr Socha (illustrations) and Wojciech Grajkowski (text) was supported by the Book Institute as part of the ©POLAND Translation Programme.
