There are so many things that divide people and societies: nationality, language, ethnicity, social status, age, gender, religion, sexual orientation, one’s worldview. We do not negate these differences, but we question them and are interested in ways to deal with them constructively and productively and even perhaps: to overcome them. Our theme for the Leipzig Book Fair 2022 programme – when we are the region in focus for the third and final time – is entitled: US AND THEM.

More information about the authors and new books will be available from mid-January onward.

But 2021 is not over yet! The Archipelago Yugoslavia, our theme for this year, can still be discovered and explored.
