Let’s meet up! Lontar will be at the Frankfurt Book Fair from the 13th to the 18th of October 2015. Hall 4.0 No. C80. We will exhibit our books, including a plethora of new Lontar titles. This year, you will find a lot of Indonesian literature in Frankfurt.
Why, you ask? In case you haven’t heard the fabulous news yet: Indonesia is this year’s Guest of Honor at the Frankfurt Book Fair. Many Indonesian publishers will proudly display their titles at the world’s biggest book fair in an attempt to introduce Indonesian literature to the world. Lontar is privileged to be one of the Frankfurt Book Fair's exhibitors.
Our Lontar crew and writers will be among those participating in FBF events. We have our chairman John H. McGlynn hosting a talk on “Introducing Indonesian Literature to the World". We have Elizabeth Pisani, author of "Indonesia Etc," moderating a discussion with famed Indonesian travel writer Agustinus Wibowo. A multitude of Lontar authors will be speakers, including Ahmad Tohari, Dewi Lestari, Lily Yulianty Farid, and Dorothea Rosa Herliany. Please stay tuned! We will update the full list of Indonesian FBF authors and their schedules on our website!
We hope to see you in Frankfurt. Go Indonesia!
