At least 90,000 people are expected to visit Frankfurt’s annual book fair this weekend.
After three days of trade for sellers, now all book-lovers get the chance to meet their favourite authors or be introduced to new ones with more than 100,000 publications on show. Korea is this year’s guest of honour and its stalls are creating a bit of a buzz. “I want to look around but I’ve never read any Korean literature so far,” said one visitor. “It’s a foreign culture, a country that lives by itself, secluded. We have to open up to Korea,” added another. But before that happens, visitors also have the chance to learn more about Korea at the Agora open space which is being used to demonstrate different aspects of Korean culture. The Frankfurt Book Fair ends on Sunday.
