Ithaca magazine and Ithaca online
EKEBI publishes the electronic magazine Ithaca Online, an English magazine which promotes 7 Greek books in all categories (novels, short stories, poetry, treatises, coffee table books, children’s books and cookery books) each month on the internet so that foreign publishers can get a snapshot of trends in the modern Greek book market. Ithaca Online is sent each month to more than 1,000 recipients worldwide and the printed version is available at international book fairs.
A committee has been set up to select the books presented, comprised of literary critic Vangelis Hatzivasiliou, University Professor and translator of Modern Greek Literature, Jacques Bouchard, journalist Vivienne Nilan, author and secretary of the Centre’s Board, Dionysis Magliveras, translator David Connolly and EKEBI Director Catherine Velissaris.
Once a year before the Frankfurt Book Fair, EKEBI publishes a printed version of its online English magazine Ithaca Online. The new issue of Ithaca magazine presents the books selected by the committee in categories (novels, short stories, poetry, treatises, illustrated volumes, children’s books and cookery books), their authors and information about copyright and how to contact publishers.
