Alexandros Papadiamantis

The author and his heroes

Main Stage
The “Literature: people’s stories” cycle seeks to shed light on individual life stories which can go so far as to influence a nation.
Free entrance
The writer from Skiathos could have been a hero in a novel himself. Poor by choice, he did not seize the opportunities for an easy life that came his way, squandering any money that came his way and going around looking scruffy and uncared for. So where did Papadiamantis the great writer end and his literary creations begin?

The “Literature: people’s stories” cycle seeks to shed light on individual life stories which, having acquired a mythic dimension by being set down on paper in book form, can go so far as to influence a nation’s cultural, social and even political life.
