A lively literary discussion between the acclaimed writer and anthropologist Sofka Zinovieff (Eurydice Street, Granta) and Cara Hoffman (Running, Simon & Schuster), moderated by Ranbir Sidhu (author of Deep Singh Blue, Harper Collins) on the evolution of Athens over the past four decades.

A visceral analysis of how the city’s demographic profile changed radically over those crucial years after the military regime, how its landscape changed dramatically from a 19th century backwater to a chaotic urban sprawl, and politically, from a fringe-Balkan capital into a European metropolis and Olympic city.

The discussion will be held in English.

A wine and cheese reception follows the discussion.
