Focus on Norwegian fiction in Copenhagen

The Norwegian embassy in Copenhagen, the Norwegian Publishers Association and NORLA continue their collaboration on initiatives to promote Norwegian literature in Denmark. An exclusive mini-seminar is being arranged on 9 February for Danish publishers, dedicated to Norwegian fiction. Critic and translator Margunn Vikingstad will give an orientation on Norwegian contemporary literature. The authors Hilde K. Kvalvaag (current with Lev vel, alle, (Have a Good Life) Samlaget, 2015) and Johan Harstad (current with Max, Mischa & Tet-offensiven, (Max, Mischa and the Tet Offensive) Gyldendal 2015) will present themselves and their writing.
