At the Leipzig Book Fair, Georgia, the Guest of Honour at this year’s Frankfurter Buchmesse, celebrated the launch of its literature programme, which consists of numerous events across Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Now “Georgia – Made by Characters” has come up with something for the start of its bookselling campaign too: The Guest of Honour is inviting booksellers to literary and culinary evenings being held in Frankfurt, Berlin and Munich in May.
These evenings will revolve around the country’s literature, and guests will also learn about the various elements of the bookselling campaign and how they can benefit from Georgia’s Guest of Honour appearance. Georgian authors Ana Kordzaia-Samadashvili (Who Killed Chaika?, Hans Schiler Verlag) and Davit Gabunia (Colours of the Night, Rowohlt Berlin) will be giving a short introduction on their country’s literature and will read from books by selected Georgian authors. In addition, the head chef, Luka Nachkebia, will be offering a little introduction to Georgian cuisine. Georgian specialities and Georgian wine will give guests a taste of Georgia itself.
