NORLA to the Jaipur Literature Festival in India, January 18-20

NORLA is, together with the Royal Norwegian Embassy in New Delhi, very excited to take part in the new initiative – Jaipur BookMark, during the largest free literature festival in the world, Jaipur Literature Festival, January 18-20. Also participating is Norwegian author Jørn Lier Horst.

We are grateful for this unique opportunity to take part, as a country partner, in a very imporant venue for the promotion of literature, translation and publishing. We look forward to exploring more possibilities for Norwegian literature in India through this partnership, and welcome everyone to meet us at the BookMark.

NORLA joins hands with the Royal Norwegian Embassy in India to come to Jaipur and present Norwegian literature to Indian audiences. The Embassy acts as a useful conduit between the two literary institutions – Jaipur BookMark and NORLA – to strengthen Norwegian literary and publishing presence in India. It is expected that the Jaipur BookMark will bring together 100 key publishing professionals in its first edition.

The publishing industry in India is counted among the top seven in the world, and ranks third after the US and the UK in the English language sector.
