Greek Publishers, Writers Feature for BolognaBookPlus 2023

November 14, 2022

ATHENS – Greek authors and the country’s publishers will get recognition at the BolognaBookPlus 2023 exhibit where the industry and writers will be featured, the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports said.

The event will take place from March 6-9 after beginning in 2020 by BCBF/BolognaFiere in collaboration with the Italian Publishers Association (AIE) to reach a general publishing audience, also said the site The BookSeller.

Greece’s Deputy Minister of Culture Nicholas Yatromanolakis said that, “Showcasing the vibrant Greek literary market as the inaugural BolognaBookPlus Market of Honour in 2023 is a great opportunity to share with publishing professionals and the world the wealth of Greek letters and the multitude of contemporary Greek literary voices, as well as a broader cultural program that will highlight both Greece’s rich cultural heritage and current scene.

“Having recently launched GreekLit, a translation grant programme, we believe the timing is perfect. We are looking forward to working closely with the BBPlus guest director, Jacks Thomas, and BCBF’s director, Elena Pasoli, to provide a great cultural, business and networking experience.”

Thomas described it as “an exciting moment in BolognaBookPlus’ development”, saying: “I am truly excited to have the opportunity of showcasing the powerhouse that is the Greek book industry. Steeped in the illustrious – and obvious – long tradition of writing, culture and exports to the world, it is timely and significant that, in a year that the GreekLit translation grant was launched, Greece also takes its general publishing industry to the global stage at Bologna 2023.”
