A pioneering and at the same time ambitious project begins in Athens, as part of the Cultural Olympiad 2001-2004 program. The project's title is "Global Novel" and it is based on an idea of the Greek author Yiorgos Skourtis. Fourteen authors from 11 countries will write the novel, which will be completed by Christmas 2003,. The Minister of Culture of Greece, Mr Evangelos Venizelos proceeds to the official announcement of the project on Tuesday, April 15.
Eleven foreign and three Greek novelists undertake the task to write the global novel. The authors, one by one, will be continuing the novel from the point it was left by the previous one. Each sequel will be translated into all 11 languages spoken by the writers. The project will be finally completed in three parts.
