Event

My Greek Drama; An Evening with Ambassador Gianna Angelopoulos
Join the World Affairs Council community and members for an evening with Ambassador-at-Large Gianna Angelopoulos on 05/30 at Town Hall.  Angelopoulos, a former member of the Greek parliament, will discuss how she headed Greece's successful bid to host the 2004 Olympic Games, an achievement that led to her appointment, in 1998, as ambassador-at-large. She was later asked to assume the presidency of the Athens 2004 Organizing Committee for the Olympic Games, taking over preparations that were significantly behind schedule and over budget. Under her leadership, Athens held what International Olympic Committee President Jacques Rogge called "unforgettable, dream Games.

More recently, Angelopoulos has served as an active member of the Clinton Global Initiative and as vice chair of the Dean's Council for Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government. Former President Bill Clinton has said of her, "From Crete to Athens and Zurich to London, Gianna Angelopoulos has made a career of turning ideas into action."

Angelopoulos's forthcoming memoir, My Greek Drama: Life, Love and One Woman's Olympic Effort to Bring Glory to Her Country, will be published by Greenleaf Book Group Press in May 2013.

The University Bookstore will provide book copies to purchase before and after the event.
