The Norwegian Guest of Honour project comprises hundreds of activities in the German speaking area throughout 2019, and culminates at the Frankfurt Book Fair in October 2019. The project represents huge international possibilities for Norwegian literature and arts.

NORLA – Norwegian Literature Abroad, is in charge of the process towards 2019, and cooperates closely with authors, publishing houses, literary agents, art institutions, our network Norwegian Arts Abroad and other cultural entities in order to create a solid and attractive Guest of Honour program.

The organisation disseminates knowledge about Norwegian books and authors abroad, and operations are financed by the Norwegian Ministry of Culture. NORLA was founded in 1978 and since 2004 NORLA has contributed to translations of close to 4,800 Norwegian books into no less than 65 languages.
