The Swedish international book fair in Gothenburg (Göteborg) opens this september, 24-27. Spain is in focus this year. I will be going there for at least one day visiting, among publishers my own publishers, which I have made covers and illustrations for. To quote the press release on the book fair website:
"The Book Fair is a four day long literary festival. The many stages and over 800 exhibitors' stands host meetings between writers, Nobel Prize winners, publishers and booklovers who explore the power of the written word together. Come and join us!
The 25th annual Swedish Book Fair kicks off from the 24th-27th September this year. Spain is in focus in 2009 and some of the country's leading writers will attend the Book Fair. We are happy to welcome Rosa Montero, writer and journalist, and one of the leading narrators depicting modern Spain. Her books have become models for a new and more open Spanish society.
The 2009 seminar programme includes 442 seminars, and an impressive 785 participants from 25 countries will join in the seminars, talks and discussions."
I will be at the book Fair the 25th, Friday the whole day, from 10:30 in the morning. If you are a publisher, editor or similar, and like to set up a meeting, please email me via my website contact page: www.stefanlindblad.com
Have fun at the fair if you are going there.
