Once again, NORLA will be participating in the Jaipur Literature Festival!
This is the world’s largest free literature festival, with an overwhelming number of writers, participants and audiences from India and the rest of the world. The Nordic countries and Norway are well represented this year, with several Nordic authors taking part. From Norway, there will be Maja Lunde, who will talk both about her adult books and about writing for children. Hanne Ørstavik will participate in a panel of Nordic authors, along with Henriette Rostrup, Laura Lindstedt and Einar Karasson, who will be interviewed by Margit Walsø.

A side program at the literature festival will be the industry showcase BookMark, where publishers and others working with literature from across India and many other countries will meet to discuss industry issues, and to present and sell books etc. Here, Margit Walsø and Oliver Møystad will participate in a number of settings. It will also be an opportunity to discuss Norwegian literature within the Indian and international publishing industry.
BookMark is supported by The Norwegian Embassy in Delhi. Norway’s ambassador Nils Ragnar Kamsvåg will be one of those attending.
