Book trade gathering in New York

On Thursday 14 September the Norwegian consulate general in New York and NORLA will host a book trade gathering for American publishers. The focus will be on Norwegian fiction.

NRK’s Marta Norheim will give an introduction to Norwegian contemporary literature and three Norwegian authors will attend – Cecilie Enger, Nina Lykke and Vigdis Hjorth – to speak about their latest books.
On the same evening, Jostein Gaarder and his American publisher Archipelago Books will launch the American edition of Questions Asked (Det spørs), and Maja Lunde and her American publisher Touchstone will launch the American edition of The History of Bees.
At the same time, on 11–17 September, the Brooklyn Book Festival will take place. Here Maja Lunde and Jostein Gaarder are on the programme on 16 September and Karl Ove Knausgård on Sunday 17 September. Read more about the festival here.
