Iceland culture on display in Delhi
With Iceland being the guest country at the Frankfurt Book Fair next month, a prelude is trying to acquaint the Indian publishing and literary fraternity with the European island nation's culture and literature.
'Fabulous Iceland: Portraits of Contemporary Icelandic Authors' and art exposition 'Cognitive Fluidity' have brought to India snapshots of the nation at the Max Mueller Bhavan from Sep 9-17.
"Iceland is the guest country of the Frankfurt Book Fair while Indian publishing is the trade spotlight at the prestigious book carnival," a spokesperson for the German Book Office, which is coordinating the showcase, said.
