Books and Bertelsmann are inextricably linked. What began in 1835 as a small publisher is today the biggest trade book publishing group in the world. Accordingly, literature continues to be a high priority for the company.
Bertelsmann regularly hosts literature events at its premises in the European capitals of Berlin, Brussels and Madrid. Bertelsmann’s Blue Sofa, a project with the partners ZDF and Deutschlandradio, has become established as a regular presence at the book fairs in Frankfurt and Leipzig.
