Book Fest in 28th Year

The KL International Bookfair kicks off this Friday at the PWTC and runs till 26th April. Organized by the Ministry of Education, Malaysia, the event is now in its 28th year. The website with all the details is here.

The event that looks most interesting to me is the talk by Peter Ripken on Marketing Your book In Frankfurt Book Fair (sic!).

Ripken is the Director for the Society for the Promotion of African, Asian and Latin American Literature in Frankfurt, a non-profit literary agency for authors and publishers from the Southern Hemisphere. Since one of the biggest problems for local publishers and authors is how to reach a global market, I think this talk is timely.
