On November 23, 2022, as part of the celebrations honoring José Saramago's birth centennial, 15 readers of the author took part in a lighthearted workshop on the works of the Portuguese Nobel winner at the Cultural Hall of the Embassy of Portugal in Athens. In order to increase local awareness of Saramago's writing, Athena Psylliá, translator of all Saramago´s works published in Greek, and philologist Christos Kotsakopoulos from the Cultural Sector of the Embassy of Portugal, organized a writing and reading game.

The 15 participants had the chance to play an association game in the first phase where they had to match up passages from José Saramago's works with the titles and covers of the books published by Kastaniotis publishing house in order to become familiar with the author's style of writing and the themes of the works that had already been translated into Greek. Blindness, Seeing, Death with Interruptions, The Year of the Death of Ricardo Reis, Baltasar and Blimunda, Cain, The Gospel according to Jesus Christ, All the Names, Skylight, The Lives of Things and the Tale of the Unknown Island, The Cave, The Elephant's Journey, The Stone Raft, The Double and the History of the Siege of Lisbon were the titles translated into Greek and published by Kastantiotis Editions, which the participants read and got to know by the Translator of the books herself.

In the second round of the game, the 15 readers had the chance to remark on each of the books, sharing their personal stories and analyzing José Saramago's thoughts to comprehend the forms, structures, and concepts that distinguished the author's writing. In the final phase of the game, the Translator provided the participants with the titles and a few key words of the 3 books not yet translated into Greek (The Widow/Land of Sin, Raised from the Ground, Handbook of Painting and Calligraphy) with the purpose of letting them freely and creatively construct their own version of the stories following Saramago's thought.

It is hoped that the workshop will have new meetings in the near future in order to expand this cultural and educational action that has managed to attract the interest of the Greek public and keep alive the literary legacy of José Saramago among his readers in Greece.
