Initiative to promote Norwegian literature in Tokyo

In collaboration with the royal Norwegian embassy in Tokyo NORLA is looking forward to presenting a two day programme about Norwegian literature in Japan. The event is designed for Japanese translators and publishers and will have a particular focus on crime fiction and children’s literature.
Participants from Norway are authors Jørn Lier Horst, Mari Kanstad Johnsen, publisher Svein Størksen of Magikon publishing house and translator Anne Lande Peters, as well as Margit Walsø and Dina Roll-Hansen from NORLA.

See selected Norwegian titles that NORLA will present during the event here.
