Will be for the next two days at the Frankfurt book fair where Flanders & the Netherlands are this year’s ‘guest of honour’. Promoting one or two new translations in German, another one in English (& meeting over a brand new, mute book in progress for next year…) Looking forward seeing all the people we’ve been mailing with for the last 5 months (and some real German readers;-)) ‘live’.
Meanwhile, we found this fine printed magazine about Flanders in our real mailbox and I turned out to be ‘officially representing’ our capital, while speaking fluently German! Jawohl, no kidding.
