Born in Cohoes, NY in 1932 to a Greek immigrant family, Athena V. Lord moved to Albany, just around the corner from the old Harmanus Bleecker Library, at age six. A voracious reader as a child, the Library became a second home. And so it gives us a special pleasure to name her as our 2017 Literary Legend. [More info]
Athena V. Lord is the author of five books:
Pilot for Spaceship Earth: R. Buckminster Fuller, Architect, Inventor, and Poet (1978)
A Spirit to Ride the Whirlwind (1981)
Today’s Special: Z.A.P. and Zoe
The Luck of Z.A.P. and Zoe (1987)
