Weltempfang - Centre for Politics, Literature and Translation: the name ("hosting the world") says it all
In the Weltempfang 2012, there were readings and discussion events with international authors, intellectuals and translators.
The section is rounded off with a café area to be used for further discussion, as somewhere to arrange to meet, or just for relaxation.
The Society for the Promotion of African, Asien and Latin American Literature (litprom)
supports and promotes literature from Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean and the Arab World in Germany. litprom organises the Weltempfang on behalf of the Frankfurt Book Fair. It also administers the Invitation Programme, in which publishers from developing book nations are invited to attend the Book Fair.
