Jolabokaflod in the USA

The world of Jolabokaflod is expanding.

We are in New York between 31 May and 4 June 2017 to introduce the Christmas book flood tradition to the US book trade and the North American literary world in general.

We are attending BookExpo America (the US book trade fair) and BookCon (the US authors’ convention) to talk about bringing Jolabokaflod to the USA, Canada and the rest of the continent and to collect book recommendations for our next online catalogue, which will be launched in June.

So many books, now is the time to read them.
