Wyndano's CloakWyndano’s Cloak will be going to the Jerusalem International Book Fair! The U.S. Commerce Department will display Wyndano’s Cloak in the USA Pavilion, , February 20 – 25, 2011, and will help match titles to publishers and distributors interested in purchasing foreign rights and titles for the Israeli market. I’m keeping my fingers crossed; I’d love to have Wyndano’s Cloak translated into Hebrew!
 The Jerusalem International Book Fair happens every other year, and draws over 1200 publishers from around the world. Founded in 1963, the Fair includes participants from the Arab world, including Palestine, Morocco, Egypt, and Jordan. The Fair tries to cultivate new talent by offering editorial and agent fellowship programs, and their prestigious Jerusalem Prize has been awarded to five authors who also received the Nobel Prize for literature.

M. Coetsee, Susan Sontag, Arthur Miller, and Haruki Murakami. Quite an impressive set of authors!
