Transform Diversity: Frankfurt Children's Books Fair Conference

(in collaboration with Every Story Matters)

Wednesday, October 19th, 2022, 09h00 - 13h00 (CET)

Location: Frankfurt Book Fair (Meeting Room TBC) 

What: Panel discussions, authors interviews, networking breakfast 

What is the state of diversity and inclusion in the European book market in 2022? Who decides how and wheninclusive stories will enter the market? How do we define an inclusive story? Who is bringing inclusive stories to the market now? 


These four urgent questions are among the most frequently asked by book professionals these days. They also lie at the root of our joint conference with the Frankfurt Book Fair. ‘Transform Diversity: Frankfurt Children’s Book Conference’ will be a series of three panel discussions -featuring authors, publishers, translators, and policy makers, which will revolve around the questions above and will aim to sketch a clearer picture of the diversity and inclusivity in the book sector.   


The speakers will be announced after the summer, but you can already mark October 19 in your calendar. Tickets will be on sale soon through the official website of the Frankfurter Buchmesse.
