Among the discussions of Brexit and calls for improving copyright law and freedom to publish, visitors to the Frankfurt Book Fair on Thursday also celebrated the emerging literary voices from around the world and an industry that looks increasingly healthy.

In our third and final issue of the 2016 Frankfurt Book Fair, read our interview with author Nujeen Mustafa about her journey from Syria to Germany and her message of hope to the world. Publisher Annick Press is also offering stories from Syrian refugees to YA readers.

On the Publishing Perspectives stage, a panel discussion about Brexit drew a large crowd and pointed out the vote’s potential implications for the UK’s copyright laws, European workforce, and lack of access to EU funding.

Editorial contributions from Ananth Padmanabhan, CEO of HarperCollins India, and Louise Adler, president of the Australian Publishers association, called on the industry to unite around the issue of copyright in oder to protect publishers’ and authors’ IP.
