LTI Korea Attends 2019 Collected Korean Short Stories Publication Celebrations in Georgia

 

On Saturday June 1, 2019, the Literature Translation Institute of Korea (LTI Korea) attended a celebratory event for the Georgian publication of Collected Korean Short Stories. The event took place at the 21st Tbilisi International Book Fair in Georgia.

As part of its ongoing efforts for cultural exchange and strengthened cooperation with countries around the world, LTI Korea undertakes cross-publication efforts with partner countries. It published the Korean-language edition of the Georgian short story anthology The Garden of Poultry-breeder Gabriel in 2018 as part of these efforts. Collected Korean Short Stories was officially published in Georgia by Intelekti publishing house during the Tbilisi International Book Fair. The anthologies are the first of their kind in both Korea and Georgia to have been published from the other country.

The celebration was attended by over 30 people, including Intelekti representatives and local readers. The event began with an introduction to the cross-publishing initiative and other projects by LTI Korea, followed by an overview of the significance of the publication, an introduction to the anthology and personal commentary by translator Sophia Jobava, a question-and-answer session between Intelekti editor Gvantsa Jobava and author Bae Suah, and an autograph session for the readers.

One day earlier, on Friday May 31, the Free University of Tbilisi hosted Bae for a meeting with students of Korean language at the university. Students were enthralled by her reading of “Green Apples Along the Highway” from Collected Korean Short Stories, and the meeting was followed by questions about Bae’s work, Korean literature, and literary translation.
