“Fabulous Iceland” Website Launched

By Iceland Review

The launch of a new website entitled “Fabulous Iceland” was announced this week. Its purpose is to promote Icelandic literary culture in relation to Iceland’s nomination as the Guest of Honor at the 2011 Frankfurt Book Fair in February last year.

The website informs readers about the latest news on Icelandic authors and book releases, including “book of the month” and “author of the month” columns, plus a regular update of all events and activities scheduled before the fair begins in Frankfurt.

“Fabulous Iceland” is available in three languages: Icelandic, English and German. The website is currently running a profile of Álfrún Gunnlaugsdóttir, this month’s author, and a feature on Jón Kalman Stefánsson’s latest novel Heaven and Hell.

The website is a collaboration between the Icelandic Ministry of Education, Science and Culture and the Berlin-based office Projektbüro Sagenhaftes Island.
