This week Marguerite Avery, Senior Acquisitions Editor, The MIT Press; Jean Black, Executive Editor, Yale University Press; Jennifer Crewe, Associate Director and Editorial Director, Columbia University Press; Christie Henry, Editorial Director, Sciences and Social Sciences, The University of Chicago Press; Alison Kalett, Editor, Biology & Earth Science, Princeton University Press; and John Kulka, Executive Editor-at-Large, Harvard University Press — are all touring Germany to visit publishing houses and learn about the lit scene. The group is being accompanied by our esteemed colleagues Helen Gregg (of the German Book Office in New York) and Siobhan O’Leary (who writes our German Buch News column).

The focus of this year’s trip is on the sociological, art historical and philosophical treatment of topics that have their origins in science and the humanities.

Siobhan is blogging about this at the Frankfurt Book Fair’s web site and you can follow their adventures there.
