Frankfurt am Main is not only famous for being the native city of Goethe, but is also one of the major book and literature centres in Germany. Several of the key institutions of the German book trade, such as the international book fair, the Börsenverein des Deutschen Buchhandels (German Booksellers Association), the Mediacampus Frankfurt (specialized school for the German book trade) and the German National Library, are based here. Literature Museums, such as the Goethe-Haus, the Caricatura Museum Frankfurt (Museum of Comic Art) and the Struwwelpeter Museum (Shockheaded Peter Museum), offer a vibrant programme of exhibitions and events throughout the year.
