NORLA to attend Shanghai Children's Book Fair

Shanghai book fair 2015

For the first time NORLA will take part in the international book fair in Shanghai, which in its entirety is dedicated to literature for children and young people. Magikon forlag will also take part and we are looking forward to meeting contacts both new and old at the joint Nordic stand H2 C21!

We also look forward to take part in the launch of the Chinese edition of award-winning children’s book Brune (Brown), along with the author Håkon Øvreås and illustrator Øyvind Torseter. Read more about the book and the wave of Norwegian books being published in Chinese here.

The Chinese translator of Brune, Li Jingjing, is NORLA’s Translator of the Month for November. Read her interview (in Norwegian) here.
