Business breakfast for Indian publishers
Institut français India and German Book Office hosted Indian publishers at a Business Breakfast on May 26, 2017 at Institut français India, New Delhi. Croissants in one hand and pen in the other, 25 publishers, representing literature of all genres (fiction, non-fiction, children’s books, graphic novels) met with the organisers at Institut français India in preparation of their participation at the upcoming 69th Frankfurt Book Fair (11-15 October 2017) where France will be Guest of Honor.
Publishers benefited from the tips given on logistic details and maximising one’s presence at the Book Fair. They were also given presentations on conferences and professional meetings set to take place during the Book Fair. The topic of the conference on the Indian markets, “The circulation of translations into English language”, taking place on Friday 13th November at the fair, was also discussed by publishers. The fair will provide Indian publishers an occasion to reaffirm their will to be key players in the English language market, and their capacity to offer diversity and richness in vernacular languages at the largest publishing event of the year.
