As part of the Goethe Institut's Visitors Program, Cassava Republic Press was able to visit this year's 2012 Leipzig Book Fair.
With over 50,000 visitors, 2,600 events and 2,700 participants, the fair which lasted from the 15th to the 18th of March was a whirlwind of activity.
Unfortunately, most of the fair is targeted towards the German-speaking market, which meant that nearly all of the author readings, dicussions and lectures - as well as the books - were in the German language.
However, the program was still an exciting opportunity to explore the success of one of the world's oldest celebrations of literature and reading.
