Jonathan Franzen at the Hellenic American Union

Jonathan Franzen was born in Illinois, in 1959, and raised in the suburbs of St. Louis. His writing genius was recognized as early as his very first appearance in American literature, but great success and establishment came with his third novel, "The Corrections". Thereafter, Franzen won numerous awards and has been honored with the greatest literary prize of America, the National Book Award. He has repeatedly climbed to the top of the global list of bestsellers and has been featured on the cover of TIME Magazine as a "Great American Novelist". Critics around the globe along with millions of readers, including the President of the United States, see Jonathan Franzen as one of the most significant contemporary writers of the United States and the world.

Psichogios Publications, the Hellenic American Union in cooperation with the Hellenic American College (HAEC), and Public bookstores are proud to present Jonathan Franzen in an open discussion with renowned journalist and writer Anastassis Vistonitis. The internationally acclaimed American author will be introducing himself to the Greek public for the very first time and talk about his life and work.
