Folkestone Book Festival: Greek Night

Greece is the cradle of Western culture, language and politics; it’s a wonderful holiday destination; it has also sadly suffered from a devastating economic crisis, seemingly putting the Eurozone at risk. Victoria will be taking part in  discussions with Alexi Kaye Campbell, Tiffany Jenkins hosted by  Professor Paul Cartledge from Cambridge University reminds us of some of things we have to thank the Greeks for starting with democracy. Novelist Victoria Hislop, who lives there part-time, shares her passion for the country. Playwright Alexi Kaye Campbell takes us back to Greece’s darkest hours. And Tiffany Jenkins tells us why she thinks the Parthenon marbles should stay at the British Museum.

There will be time for discussion while enjoying some delicious nibbles and drinks but no breaking plates!
