The Czech Republic was the main guest country at the Leipzig Book Fair (Leipziger Buchmesse) in 2019 after 24 years. In 2020, there was no main guest country at the book fair, and Czech literature should returned to Leipzig with "Echo Leipzig" and 11 Czech authors. Pandemic of COVID-19 caused that Leipziger Buchmesse was cancelled in 2020.
Unfortunately, the Leipziger Buchmesse will not take place in 2021 too, but literary events like a part of Leipzig Liest ("Lepizig read") are planned all over the city.
Participation in Leipziger Book Fair dates back to 2017. You can also take a brief look at previous years.
