The London Book Fair

Description

LTI Korea attended the London Book Fair from April 15th to 17th. We showcased diverse
Korean literature translated books, such as literature, the humanities, and children’s literature.
We also distributed LTI Korea’s periodicals and booklets that introduce the organization,
including LTI Korea’s quarterly magazine for publishers, _list: Books from Korea.

During the book fair period, along with the promotion of LTI Korea’s projects, we tried to expand our
overseas network through meetings with foreign publishers, literary agencies, and directors
of other literature related organizations. In addition, on the 16th, we held a Korean literature
seminar with writers Ch’oe Yun and Jung Young Moon. Dr. Grace Koh chaired the seminar and
Editor-in-chief of Orion publishing company Sophie Buchan participated as a panelist. They led
an active discussion on the topics of writers’ life in Korea, reading tendencies in present Korea,
major issues in Korean contemporary literature, and problems Korean writers face. Through this
event, not only did we introduce Korean literature to UK readers in advance of Korea’s Market
Focus Programme in the 2014 London Book Fair, but also set a cornerstone for entering English
publishing market by establishing the network with local publishers and directors of the London
Book Fair Organizing Committee.
