AHI Hosts Book-signing Events Featuring Former Head of 2004 Olympic Organizing Committee

WASHINGTON, DC — The American Hellenic Institute (AHI) hosted two book-signing presentations for Ambassador Gianna Angelopoulos, former president of the 2004 Athens Organizing Committee, in support of her book, “My Greek Drama” in Atlanta and Philadelphia on May 21 and 23, respectively. The events were held in cooperation with several Hellenic organizations and individual supporters. More than 100 persons attended each event.

“We are proud to organize events for Ambassador Angelopoulos that provided her with the opportunity to share her passion for Greece and the Olympic Games to the communities of Atlanta and Philadelphia,” said AHI President Nick Larigakis.  “Ambassador Angelopoulos is a dynamic individual who has an inspiring message and story to tell.  Her love of Greece, its culture, and people are all clearly evident in her presentation.”
