Guest of Honour 2022: Portugal
Portuguese is the native language of around 240 million people and therefore it is one of the world languages. When Portugal became the Guest of Honour Country of Leipzig Book Fair 2022, the focus was not only on a single country, but on literature in Portuguese, in which authors in Europe, Africa, Asia and Latin America express themselves.
So in 2022 Portuguese-language authors from countries such as Angola, Guinea-Bissau, Cape Verde, Mozambique and São Tomé e Príncipe came to Leipzig to present foreign cultures and new perspectives.
