"The world is a heavy place to bear, but for a little pride it was worth it."
The work of the poet Odysseas Elytis is the subject of the next meeting of the members of the Adult Reading Club, which will take place on Thursday, April 15 at 6:30 pm. On the occasion of the anniversary of his death on March 18, the members decided to make a tribute to the Nobel Prize-winning poet. He is one of the most important Greek authors, belongs to the literary generation of the '30s, while in 1979 he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, the highest recognition for a poet. His rich work is a valuable legacy for Greece; "Axion Esti" is one of the masterpieces of 20th century poetry.
Invited to the meeting is Ms. Anna Mykoniou, President and CEO of the Cultural Center of the Region of Central Macedonia, which will refer to the features of the work of the beloved poet.
