The Multicultural Minute #9: Frankfurt Book Fair

| | Comments (2)
I just returned from Europe on Tuesday! My college roommate and I went to the Frankfurt Book Fair, and then turned it into a bit of a vacation. After Frankfurt, we traveled on to Bruge and Amsterdam, and had a whirlwind of a great time.

I was planning to post this video last week while I was there, really I was. But I was thwarted by my technology and couldn't edit it until today. So pretend that it's actually live and coming to you directly from Frankfurt.

The exhibit on the history of printing was part of China's country exhibit at the book fair "forum." The room was set up as a little museum, showroom, and press conference stage, all with the aim of showcasing Chinese publishing.


That was a cool view at the history of books in China. I enjoyed it.

This is a second comment today, but I've just discovered your blog site and went browsing through it. I've sent your site to the school librarian, Eva Chu, where I used to teach (and where I'm doing a book signing next Friday. She's really into picture books for all ages and cultures, since it's a multicultural school. I think she will love your site and look into your books.

Sincerely, Elizabeth Varadan
