Books for Future
Children's and young-adult books that point to a better future
by Marlene Zöhrer
While the Fridays For Future movement itself has been stymied for months this year by the Covid19 crisis and the general ructions of the pandemic, climate change and the environment have become a central topic in the German-language children's and young-adult book market. Authors and publishers have responded with impressive speed to issues that only last year were active and at times polarising topics exclusively on the private, social and political level. As a result, books are now appearing on the market that had previously been tucked away in drawers.
