UK Publishers visit the Basque Country
In December 2014 Literature Across Frontiers once again introduced a group of UK literary publishers to a literary scene abroad. Presses Comma, Parthian, MacLehose and Peter Owen along with the cultural journalist Maya Jaggi visited the Basque country to get an insight into the book market and literary culture in the region. Hosted by the Etxepare Institute, the editors met with Basque publishers, translators, writers and booksellers and visited the Durango Book Fair. We hope the visit will lead to the publication of new quality Basque literature in English translation.
