NORLA to attend Frankfurt Book Fair
NORLA will be very active at the book fair in Frankfurt 2017, in that only two years remain before Norway will be Guest of Honour.
We will have a particular focus on follow-up of the many publisher visits to Norway we received last spring and on supporting Norwegian publishers and agents in their work of selling Norwegian books to foreign publishers. This applies in particular to the German publishers in the period leading up to 2019. NORLA will of course be represented at the Norwegian book trade’s joint stand in hall 5.0, A53, where we will also present the autumn’s focus titles.
We are simultaneously preparing the culture programme for the autumn of 2019 and will use the opportunity to continue our conversations with Frankfurt’s large museums, theatres and concert houses. We will also be accompanied by writers’ organizations and Norwegian institutions that are interested in becoming acquainted with the book fair in Frankfurt. State Secretary, Norwegian Ministry of Culture, Mr. Bård Folke Fredriksen, and State Secretary, Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Ms. Laila Bokhari plan to attend the book fair on the 11th October.
Margit Walsø and Halldor Gudmundsson will give the first presentation of the Norwegian Guest of Honour project at the book fair’s Business Club and participate in a seminar in which different Guest of Honour nations will present their literature.
We are very much looking forward to greeting contacts both old and new!
