The Norwegian events at the book fair have been made possible by the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Berlin, in cooperation with NORLA. A lot of Norwegian books will be on display courtesy of members of the Norwegian Publishers’ Associasion. And in addition plenty of German translations of Norwegian books will be exhibited.
The exhibition of books makes up the core of the book fair in Stuttgart, and Norwegian books will be given a prominant setting. Throughout the duration of the book weeks, the six Norwegian authors will take part in several readings and events, and there will also be art exhibitions and screenings of films related to Norwegian topics.
