The four Nordic Embassies, Institutes and the Nordic Library in Athens participate to a number of the city's literary programs and celebrations with the title The Nordic Narrative in Athens.
Under the slogan “Books Everywhere”, acclaimed authors and representatives of the arts, literature and music participate in more than 250 events in the city during the year.
A Nordic round table discussion took place in October with guests from all Nordic countries. The focus was on crime fiction and how Nordic society is portrayed through this literary genre.
The role of public libraries was presented in November through a series of workshops with experts from the Nordic countries, while the Nordic Library opened its doors to a broader public in December presenting an exhibition on Nordic travelers to Athens in the 19th and 20th century and with a series of lectures.

Athens is proud to invite its residents and visitors to enjoy literary magic and discover cultural treasures around the city's libraries, institutes and festivals. The Embassies, Institutes and Library, as well as the Embassy of Iceland in Oslo, are happy to join forces and participate in the celebrations.
The Nordic Narrative in Athens is supported by the Nordic Council of Ministers.
