Greek Language Writers’ Festival has successful debut

·

On Wednesday, March 13, the Greek Language Writers’ Festival officially launched two books – ‘Moral Continuum – Spacetime – Sisyphus and Meropi’ by Theodoros Dalmaris and ‘Portraits of Women‘ by Dina Tourvas.

The book launches were held as part of the Greek Festival of Sydney. On the night, the books were warmly received by the audience and beautifully presented by their respective authors and interviewers.

There was also a number of presentations by Costa Vertzayias, Eleni Eleftherias and Anna Couani, as well as a speech by the Secretary of the Greek Orthodox Community of NSW (GOCNSW), Michael Tsilimos. Efthymios Kallos acted as Master of Ceremonies.

The two remarkable books represent a unique exploration of the human experience, resonating with timeless themes and universal truths that transcend borders and generations.

Mr Dalmaris’ book ‘Moral Continuum – Spacetime – Sisyphus and Meropi‘ is described as a thought-provoking book and is the fifth instalment in his series. It delves into the intricacies of nature, separate from the influence of humanity. Through profound prose and poetic exploration, Dalmaris captures the complexity and creativity inherent in the natural world.

Mrs Tourvas’ book ‘Portraits of Women‘ is described as a bilingual masterpiece, offering a glimpse into the lives of 70 Greek women from Sydney and Greece. Additionally, Tourvas commemorates historical women activists renowned for their tireless efforts in advocating for humanity. Through stunning visuals and poignant narratives, Tourvas weaves together a compelling tapestry of strength, resilience, and empowerment.
