We check out Frankfurt’s book fair, the publishing industry’s biggest annual get-together. The event’s a must for authors, editors, translators and book-lovers from around the world. This year France is the fair’s guest of honour, with a special pavilion dedicated to literature from French-speaking authors. President Emmanuel Macron opened the fair alongside Chancellor Angela Merkel.
