Australian Greek Writers Festival to showcase the works of popular authors


The Sydney Greek Festival and UTS Journalism and Writing proudly present the Australian Greek Writers Festival. A day dedicated to books recently published in English by Australian Greek writers this Sunday, June 12 at the Prince Henry Center 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 that presents the ideas of identity and place and what it means to be Greek in the Diaspora.

“It’s a unique opportunity for the writers to connect with their readers and find themselves in conversation. And while their work is incredibly different, they have a common inspiration and theme – our Greek heritage,” said the Sydney Greek Festival President, Nia Karteris.
