Frankfurt, October

Schonmaier Frankfurt, October .jpg

“Frankfurt, October” is the closing poem in my book Wavelengths of Your Song.  When writing the poem Eleonore Schönmaier could never have imagined that the book would be published in German translation as Wellenlängen deines Liedes in time for the Frankfurt Bookfair 2020. Canada will be the guest country.

The Frankfurter Buchmesse is the world’s largest fair for books and is held each year in October. “The Frankfurter Buchmesse has been organised…since 1949 when 205 German exhibitors met in the Paulskirche in Frankfurt…However, the history of Frankfurter Buchmesse goes back much further – to the 15th century. At that time Johannes Gutenberg invented book printing just a few kilometres from downtown Frankfurt.”
