Frankfurt Book Fair officially opened

The President of the Argentine Republic, Dr. Christina Fernández de Kirchner, didn’t hesitate when she banged the hammer to officially open the 62nd Frankfurt Book Fair tonight. Before doing so, she gave tribute to the Argentinian authors present, celebrating them for their courage to interpret the times we live in as well as for reminding us of the past. She lauded the pluralism of voices in Argentine and was proud to represent a nation of diversity.

This diversity is evident when browsing through the extensive program presented by Argentine at the Book Fair. Over 70 authors are here to present their work and no less than 220 books from Argentine have been translated into German in time for the book fair!

The award office also, albeit slightly less formally, officially opened our stand at 6.0 A924. Welcome!
