Athens 2018 World Book Capital
From April 2018 to April 2019 the city celebrates the great UNESCO distinction. For one year, true to the slogan “Books Everywhere, Culture in Neighbourhoods”, Athens will be the place where the universal heart of the written word will be beating!
One year after hosting the most celebrated contemporary art event, documenta 14, UNESCO’s designation of Athens as World Book Capital is one more unique opportunity for the city to establish itself as an independent cultural destination.
Athens is ready for a great celebration, an experience unlike any other! A whole year full of books, reading, culture and events that promote knowledge. Whether younger or older, Athenian or visitor; all are welcome to join the festivities. Our aim? To bring books to every neighbourhood and to every corner of the city.
Let’s get started! #Athens2018
