The Flemish Literature Fund (FLF) team is getting ready for the Bologna Book Fair (30 March to 2 April - Hall 29, D33-38) and the London Book Fair (14 to 16 April - Booth 6F50). Please come and visit us!
For Bologna, a special issue of the FLF’s News & Views is released, with updates on new books from Flanders, recent prize winners and successful book projects that have been realised with the support of FLF. In London, we present 20 top titles in a second issue of 'Bookshelf Essentials', in which we zoom in on contemporary classics, after the 'classic' classics we introduced before.
No less than four German translations of Dutch-language children’s books are nominated for the prestigious Deutscher Jugendliteraturpreis. It seems the German market can't wait to receive Flanders and the Netherlands as guests of honour at the Frankfurt Book Fair in 2016.
More awards news: Fikry El Azzouzi - a new voice in our literature - has just been awarded the 65th Ark Prize of the Free Word. And Mark Schaevers has been nominated for the shortlist of the Golden Book Owl, the most important literary prize in Flanders.
We wish you a nice weekend and a lot of reading pleasure!
