Enter the Land of Fairy Tales – Athens

Children's Book Festival, Athens
Event at children’s book festival, HFC–Athens, October, 2014. HFC.

On October 3-5, the HFC hosted a children’s book festival in the beautiful garden of the Athens headquarters. Children big and small enjoyed the books, music and stories under the tree. This event was a lead-in to the 66th International Book Fair in Frankfurt (October 8-12), where the HFC will be representing Greece.

The festival had music, story-telling and an exhibition of children’s books. Invitations were extended to schools and the general public. The response was enthusiastic and we hope to host other events in the garden in future.
