The Greek Language Writers’ Festival is set to unveil an array of Greek literature and culture with the addition of the Greek Language Book’s Festival.

Carefully curated by experts, the event, running as part of the 42nd Greek Festival of Sydney will spotlight two exceptional books that embody the essence of Greek literature.

Each work delves into the human experience, resonating with timeless themes and universal truths that transcend borders and generations.

The first book is titled ‘Moral Continuum – Spacetime – Sisyphus and Meropi’ by Theodoros Dalmaris. The fifth installment in a throught-provoking series. Through prose and poetic exploration, Dalmaris captures the complexity and creativity inherent in the natural world.

Theodoros Dalmaris, born in Thana, Tripolis, excelled in Mathematics at the University of Athens. He owned a private tutoring school for 15 years and later ventured into various businesses. As a man of letters, he served as an editor for the magazines ‘ORIENTATION’ and ‘POLITICAL CRITERION.’ In poetry, Dalmaris has made a significant mark in National and International Poetry Competitions, winning 10 First Prizes.

The second book is ‘Portraits of Women’ by Dina Tourvas, a bilingual masterpiece offering insights into the lives of 70 Greek women from Sydney and Greece. Tourvas also commemorates historical women activists known for their advocacy. Through stunning visuals and poignant narratives, Tourvas weaves a compelling tapestry of strength, resilience, and empowerment.

Dina Tourvas is a renowned artist, teacher, translator, speaker, photographer, writer, and activist with over 40 years of activity in the Greek Community. Born in Evdilos, Ikaria, she migrated to Australia in 1959. Among her academic qualifications, she holds a BA in Photography and a Grad dip ed in Fine Arts. Inspired by immigration, women’s roles, and the struggles of the working class, her artistic creations reflect these themes.
