Exhibition Opening


"Congratulations, dear Maria Friedrich!" On the 100th birthday of the founder and publisher of dtv junior

04. July, 7 pm/ Jella-Lepman-Hall

By chance, she became a children's book publisher in 1971 and found her vocation in this profession: Maria Friedrich (1922-2012), founder of dtv junior, successfully shaped the dtv children's book programme for almost 20 years and set the tone with series such as dtv pocket, dtv Lebensbilder or dtv Schreibschrift.

One of Friedrich's heartfelt concerns was the promotion of young illustration.

On the occasion of what would have been her 100th birthday, the International Youth Library is showing a selection of the most beautiful works from this collection in an anniversary exhibition and paying tribute to the publisher, teacher and collector with personal contributions from some of her companions, friends, pupils and family.

The opening of the exhibition held in German on 04 July 2022, at 7 pm in the Jella Lepman Hall., will be followed by a visit to the exhibition.

Deadline for registration was 01 July 2022.
