Βιβλίων Τόποι Visits the Archives of the Gennadius Library
December 7, 2015
On Saturday afternoon twenty five people from Βιβλίων Τόποι led by journalist Lambrini Kouzeli spent two hours in the Mandylas Room of the Gennadius Library looking at a selection of documents and photographs from the archives of Heinrich Schliemann, George Seferis, Odysseus Elytis, Elias Venezis, Stratis Myrivilis, Vassilis Vassilikos, and others, with the guidance of archivists Leda Costaki, Eleftheria Daleziou, and Natalia Vogeikoff-Brogan. The staff of the Archives explained the history of various acquisitions, the ASCSA's collection and preservation policies, shared knowledge and experience from their long service in the administration of the Archives, and answered many thought-provoking questions. It was a wonderful afternoon for all of us. Βιβλίων Τόποι expressed the desire to come back next year to look at the treasures of the library.
