December 2013 Events!

The Greek Chapter of SCBWI held its December events at the very quaint Agyra bookcafe in the heart of Athens.  The theme for our events this year was: "I don't know your handwriting" which focused on the importance of expression through writing. 

Our introductory event gave us the opportunity to enjoy the magic of stories and the written word as told through oral story-telling.  Our guest was the renowned story-teller and the SCBWI Greece nominee for the 2014 Astrid Lindgren Award, Sassa Voulgari.









Our second successful event was an illustration workshop for children.  Six SCBWI illustrators enthusiastically volunteered to offer tips to children on how to design a postcard and a large, lettered stamp/illustration which was then framed for each child to take back home.  We thank Polina Papanikolaou, Stathis Petropoulos, Sophie Gali, Lela Stroutsi, Niki Leonidou and Mark Weinstein!  We would also like thank IKEA for their kind sponsorship!

Ευχαριστούμε θερμά τα IKEA για την ευγενική χορηγία!














Our last event was a joint book presentation by two much-loved authors, Katerina Kris and Antonis Papatheodoulou.  Katerina’s book series explores the “Hmms”, the inspirational creatures that live inside sheets of paper and have noses like pointed pencils.  While Antonis’s book talks about the little “tailor of words” who created clothes out of words.  Together they inspired children and adults alike to find inspiration and knit a story out of yarn, words, imagination and loads of laughter!
