The Bookfare in Leipzig was a really nice experience. I had no expectations and so it was a great weekend. We had our first 2 official readings with “theJourney” (www.theJourney.com.de). It was not easy to choose the right chapters but very cool to see that people seem to like the book.
The first reading one was in collaboration with STA-Travel. Thanks a lot to Franzi and the rest of the Team! We hope there will be more readings in other cities with STA soon.
The 2nd one was on the last day of the fare and I didn’t expect many people to come, especially because there was a break in the reading booth before… But finally another 20 people showed up.
All in all: Leipzig is a great City. A good mix of history and modernity – in all aspects.
And hundreds of events like readings, music and poetry slam all over the city make it even more exciting to wander around and enjoy this weekend dedicated to the written word.
And the Manga Comic Con was for sure the most entertaining part of the book fare. I didn’t know it was too until we arrived and saw all these crazy dressed up people in really crazy complex costumes…
