The Frankfurt Book Fair's guest of honour Indonesia was present at our stand, together with Indonesian authors, a book exhibition and a multifaceted stage programme. The Book Fair Thursday was entirely devoted to Indonesia: We served an Indonesian soup, we invited to a press briefing, later the I-Lit programme to promote translations was presented and finally we rounded off the day with the Indonesia Happy Hour.
