Soon we also set course towards Frankfurter Buchmesse, where there will be a record amount of Norwegian participation, with several authors contributing both at readings, and also at the press conference where Norway will present itself as next year’s Guest of Honour. On the last day of the fair we will formally take over the so-called Guest Scroll from this year’s guest country Georgia, in a ceremony where we will have an artistic accompaniment from both an author and talented musicians.
See all details here.

Following the Frankfurter Buchmesse, NORLA will take part in the Swiss festival Literaturtage Zofingen to present Norway’s Guest of Honour-project at the Frankfurter Buchmesse 2019.
