Market Focus and Beyond: What’s Next for Indonesian Literature?

Market Focus and Beyond: What’s Next for Indonesian Literature?

Club Room, National Hall Gallery

Book fair market focuses can play an important role in shining a spotlight on languages and counties underrepresented in the English-language publishing. But what comes next? How do these markets, and literature itself, react to a new global readership? This discussion will examine Indonesia, London Book Fair’s 2019 Market Focus and the Guest of Honor at the Frankfurt Book Fair in 2015. With readers globally exploring Indonesian literature, how does that impact what writers, translators, and publishers are doing now? And what is the future of Indonesian literature? The panel discussion will feature authors Laksmi Pamuntjak, Dee Lestari, Tiffany Tsao, John McGlynn of the Lontar Foundation, and Amazon Crossing senior editor Liza Darnton. The session will be followed by a book giveaway.
