In their balancing act between culture and commerce, the Book Information Centres and the German Book Offices operate in the challenging arena between both clear representation of interests and the fulfilment of a cultural and political mission.
With a wide range of activities, the Book Information Centres and the German Book Offices encourage existing interest in German books and in so doing, promote rights & licence sales and book exports.
The goal of the GBO is to make German literature accessible to the American book market.
We seek to achieve this goal by acting as a liaison between our contacts in both the German and American publishing industries, and fostering relationships within both communities. Every year, the GBO invites a number of American editors on a trip to Germany, in order to create personal contacts between the two groups.
