KATIE MELUA SETS THE PITCH FOR THE GUEST OF HONOUR 2018
 
The Handover Ceremony of the “GuestScroll” by France to Georgia on the Sunday of the Book Fair this year was the occasion for a moving performance. The Georgian-British musician Katie Melua performed a song in her mother tongue, giving the audience a vivid impression of the sound of the Georgian language. With the slogan “Georgia – Made by Characters”, the spotlight next year will be on the culture and literature of this country at the Frankfurter Buchmesse.
