Norway will be the Guest of Honor at the Cairo Book Fair 2024. This is a golden opportunity to strengthen the dialogue between Norway and the Arab-speaking world, by presenting the scope of Norwegian literature to an Egyptian audience. The Norwegian programme will be opened by HRH Crown Princess Mette-Marit in Cairo January 25. The Crown Princess is Ambassador for Norwegian literature abroad. Norway’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Espen Barth Eide, will also participate in the opening of the book fair.

Poem of the Week. 52 poems through the year

Poem of the Week is back!

In 2019, NORLA launched the project, Poem of the Week, 52 poems throughout the year, in connection with Norway being Guest of Honour at the Frankfurter Buchmesse, where modern and older poetry was presented every week to an attentive international audience.
We are now continuing our focus on poetry with a new series, Poem of the Week, which, as it did last time, follows a narrative linked to the seasons. The selection is made by Annette Vonberg.
