Bavarian Book Award 2016
Börsenverein des Deutschen Buchhandels Landesverband Bayern
Bavarian quality worldwide – this is the motto of the Bavarian Book Award. 2015 will be the second year in which the most important new publications written by German speaking authors will be awarded. These publications are brilliant as far as quality of content, language and book design are concerned. The Bavarian Book Award is a highlight of the cultural year. It is absolutely unique because it links entertainment and literary expertise at the highest possible level.
The focus of the Bavarian Book Award is on reading. No matter whether printed books or e-books, we would like to create and support a culture of reading in which books are appreciated and new possibilities of reading are opening up.
Thanks to the support of numerous partners in politics, culture and economy we are able to establish the Bavarian Book Award as a new brand. We would like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to all of you.
Michael Then, Vorsitzender
