March in Leipzig is characterized by reading. The Leipzig Book Fair and its reading festival “Leipzig reads” are the spring events of the book and media sector. Authors, readers and publishing companies meet to engage in exchange and discover what is new.

Especially the unique combination of book fair and reading festival makes the book fair an exciting and varied experience for young and old. The motto is:  Diving into the fascinating world of literature and discovering exciting new publications, authors, programs and publishing companies.

This year’s host country is the Czech Republic. Almost 60 authors and artists from the Czech Republic have booked their trip to Leipzig. They present their latest works and look forward to exchanging information on literature and culture with colleagues and the public.

The fair is open every day for the general public and professional visitors, Sunday is family day.
