Next week, the FLF will be welcoming ten publishers from all around the world, submerging them in our vibrant children's and youth literature. It’s already the fifth publishers tour for that genre, and a very successful way to convince foreign publishers of the quality of our literature. For the occasion, a third edition of the FLF’s brochure ‘Bookshelf Essentials’ is ready, presenting thirty-three titles that showcase the diversity of Flemish storytelling.
Exciting times: our FMB16 team is preparing an impressive guest of honour presentation at the Frankfurt Book Fair in October. But they are not alone: German publishing house mairisch stays in Amsterdam this month to explore Dutch and Flemish literature and culture.
As usual, we introduce the two literary translators who are currently working in our Translators’ House. Furthermore, translator Christiane Burkhardt reports on her visit at the end of 2015.
