Description

LTI Korea attended the 23rd Taipei International Book Exhibition (TIBE) along with writer Kim Aeran. LTI Korea kept a pavilion at the Exhibition and held business meetings as well. TIBE, organized by the Taipei Book Fair Foundation, was held from February 11 to 16 this year. TIBE draws great interest from book readers as is evident from the participation of nearly 68 countries, 1,727 booths, and 502,000 visitors at the Exhibition last year. LTI Korea held an event at the Exhibition on Friday, February 13 together with Crown Publishing and Taipei Book Fair Foundation. Kim Aeran whose novel, Pit-a-pat, My Life was translated and published in Taiwan in September last year attended the event along with Taiwanese writer Essay Liu (劉梓潔). Despite being born in the same year (1980), the two writers’ works display quite different styles, perhaps due to their different growth environments. This event offered a chance to the Taiwanese readers to catch a glimpse of the two writers’ works and personalities. Apart from this, interviews were conducted with Taiwan’s Crown Magazine (Huang Gua, 皇冠) and weekly Business Today (今周刊) and press media from Hong Kong.
