On Thursday 26/02/15 the awarded British author, Victoria Hislop was invited to speak with the school students about the role of history and literature in her books at the Cultural and Sports Centre at Mandoulides Schools in Thessaloniki, Greece.
When her speech was over, I had the chance to have a conversation with her and to present her with my book, The Vampire Mansion by Fylatos publications.
Concerning my book, the picture on the cover caught her attention: a splendid Jewish mansion that was built in Thessaloniki in the 1870’s. She also liked certain characteristics of the book such as the apothegms before each chapter and particularly the fact that it was illustrated. She leafed through the pages, focusing on certain points with enthusiasm.
