International publishers visiting Norway to prepare for 2019


Twelve international publishers from Germany, the United Kingdom and USA visited Oslo May 2 – 5.
It was a true pleasure to welcome our guests to Norway, and to show them some of the best literary voices Norway has to offer!

All of four editors of Karl Ove Knausgård’s books were invited to attend the opening of the Munch exhibition «Towards the Forest» («Mot skogen») which is curated by Knausgård.
The guests also visited Norwegian publishing houses and literary institutions. In addition to meeting with Norwegian authors, they also met editors and literary agents for a full three days.
