Focus on Norwegian fiction in Sweden

The Norwegian embassy in Stockholm, the Norwegian Publishers Association and NORLA continue their collaboration on the promotion of Norwegian literature in Sweden. This year for the third time an exclusive mini-seminar is being organized for Swedish publishers and this year’s seminar is dedicated to Norwegian fiction.
The two previous seminars focused on literature for children and young people, and non-fiction.

Alberte Bremberg, editor of the literary magazine Bokvennen, will give an introduction to Norwegian contemporary literature. The two authors Birger Emanuelsen (who this autumn published Historien om et godt menneske, Tiden, 2015) and Helga Flatland (who this autumn published Vingebelastning, Aschehoug, 2015) will introduce themselves and their oevre.
