Sixty years after his death, literary giant Nikos Kazantzakis remains the most translated Greek author of the past two centuries. His classic novel Zorba the Greek was turned into a mainstream film and he's widely considered the author of freedom across Greece. As the country continues to reel from its financial and refugee crises, many continue to read his work for inspiration and insight.

Niki Stavrou is the Director of  Kazantzakis Publications in Greece, and she's in Sacramento for a special event commemorating the work of Kazantzakis at Sacramento State tomorrow.
