Athens as a Book | Pick up a book before the flight at the Athens airport

by GreeksConnect Team



Travelers departing from the Athens airport, now have a chance to pick up a book written by acclaimed Greek writers and translated into English, as part of the “Athens as a Book” initiative.

Mini libraries featuring some of the best Greek writers, 187 books in total, have been placed at the airport’s departure areas, offering passengers the opportunity to delve in the works of Greek poets and prose writers before boarding their flight and thus “bidding farewell” to the Athens 2018 World Book Capital by reading a book.

Actively participating in the Athens World Book Capital events, Athens International Airport (AIA) invites all travelers to indulge in a “Book Before the Flight” and visit the ongoing “Airportraits!” exhibit to run through to April.

At the same time, travelers will also have the chance to visit the #AthensAirportraits! exhibit featuring 52 photo stories – one for each week of the year – created by writers Thodoris Georgakopoulos and Stella Kasdagli, together with photographer Efstathia Kosti, who interviewed passengers about their airport experience. The show runs through the end of March at the airport’s Athens Suburban Railway (Proastiakos) station.

AIA and the Athens Municipality have worked together to promote Athens World Book Capital events and activities, which have included over 250 book-related events across the Greek capital, including reading happenings, seminars and conferences, workshops and competitions, activities for adults and kids.
