A city without a traditional bookshop is a city without a heart. That's one of the reasons indie publishing house Bibliotheque opened bookshop Stegi Bibliotheque. Among the graffitied walls of Exarcheia, Bibliotheque stands as a beacon of high culture offering translated works from the likes of Julio Cortázar, Pablo Neruda and Matsuo Bashō. Greek writers, especially poets, include George Le Nonce and Apostoli Artinou. There's also a curated selection of books from other publishers that challenge the status quo in every way. Bibliotheque attracts the literati of the city, especially with its author events. Follow on Facebook to stay informed. And feel a different city beat.


Bibliotheque is a bookshop for dreamers and intellectuals.
For the up-close-and-personal author events.
