BLOGGING AND PROMOTION FOR BOOKS
Workshop and Networking

The publisher commissions, edits markets and sells a book – and along with it the hundreds of other books they publish in a year. Too many books, too little time – there is not much spotlight a book can steal for long. Thanks to technology and popular media platforms, authors and books could grab more eyeballs, for longer.

"Norway - The Dream We Carry” is the theme of this year’s Guest of Honour at the Frankfurter Buchmesse (16-20 October 2019). At a press conference in Leipzig today, Norway celebrated the start of its 2019 literature programme. 18 Norwegian authors and their works will be in the spotlight over the next few days: around 40 events are planned at the Leipzig exhibition grounds and in the city itself, stimulating interest in Norway’s diverse literature and music scene. The programme is organised by NORLA (Norwegian Literature Abroad).
