Presentation of the book by Celia Blue Johnson…

Cover of the book "Dancing with Mrs. Dalloway"

The Hellenic American Union and the Hellenic American College (HAEC) in cooperation with Politropon Publications present the book “Dancing with Mrs. Dalloway - Stories of the Inspiration Behind Great Works of Literature” on the occasion of its publication.

Dancing with Mrs. Dalloway offers stories of the inspiration behind fifty classic works, from Jane Eyre, and Frankenstein to Anna Karenina, and Winnie-the-Pooh. Celia Blue Johnson presents who Edgar Allan Poe's raven really belonged to, whether Jane Austen's heartthrob Mr. Darcy actually existed, who got into mischief with a young Mark Twain, and what the real Sherlock Holmes did for a living. These delightful stories reveal the often unknown reasons our literary heroes put quill to parchment, pen to paper, or finger to keyboard to write some of the world's best-loved books.

Speaking about the book will be: Neoklis Galanopoulos (Author), Labrini Kouzeli (Book critic) and Efstathia Tsigkanou (Translator).

Fani Aggelidou will read out excerpts from the book and the pianist Myrto Houtopoulou will perform.
