Columbia University

Program support
The grant supports the participation of two Greek authors in the Festival des Écrivains du Monde (World Writers’ Festival).  The Festival will bring together some thirty writers from around the world—all of whom have had their works translated into French and have a following in the francophone world. The Festival will take place in Paris and Lyon from September 20-24, 2013.
Columbia University was founded in 1754. It is the oldest institution of higher learning in the state of New York and the fifth oldest in the United States.  Columbia Global Centers expand the University’s research, scholarship, teaching, and service around the world.
