The Greek Festival of Sydney and UTS Journalism and Writing are proudly presenting the Greek Australian Writers’ Festival. A day devoted to recently published books in English by Greek Australian writers this Sunday, June 12 at the Prince Henry Centre in Little Bay.
Although very different in style and content, all the books are united by common themes of migration, displacement and identity.
During the day, the launch of the digital publication of Children of the Revolution will also be introduced. A publication which introduces ideas of identity and place and what it means to be Greek in the diaspora.
“This is a unique opportunity for writers to connect with their readers and come together in conversation. And even though their work is incredibly different, they have a united inspiration and theme – our Greek heritage” President of the Greek Festival of Sydney, Nia Karteris, said.
The sessions will run for 45 minutes including questions from the audience. Books will be on sale and authors available for signings.
