I want to thank everyone who flooded the cozy area of the Municipal Library in Sofades Karditsa.
As a child of the region and myself, I feel the need to leave Athens and get in touch with you. With the friends who support “Tunnel” all these twenty-five years.
My luxurious trilogy LIGHT IN THE TUNEL by Kastaniotis Publications is a bridge between us. We found ourselves on Sunday, December 22nd, on the occasion of the presentation of the book on the initiative of the READING CLUB “Sofa…des”, which i thank for their support and hospitality.
In the crowded room, despite the heavy winter day, i was honored by people of all ages not only from Thessaly but also from Serres and Drama.
The company provided us with the present local actors in the field of administration and education. Karditsa MP Giorgos Kotsos also joined.
The debate was constructive. We have focused on many of the problems of society and especially on domestic violence as well as how parents and teachers can identify its signs and act deterrent.
The event was coordinated by the librarian and text curator Alexia Theogianni – Mitsiaki.
The love you have shown me and your warm words are an honor to me. I wish 2020 to be lucky, creative and happy for everyone.
From beautiful Kimi with love…
A big thank you to all of you who honored me with your presence in beautiful Kimi.
We arrived on Sunday December 15th in a warm company with a constructive discussion in the cozy Kymi Palace Hotel where I thank them for their hospitality.
The presentation of my luxurious trilogy “Light in the Tunnel” by Kastaniotis editions was a way to get in touch with all of you Tunnel lovers and I was pleased to see smiling people of all ages.
Books based on true stories we have highlighted in “Light in the Tunnel” and “show” the profile of crime in Greece. But most importantly, the messages I want to pass on to all of us to deal with any problems before they occur. The most ‘hot’ is abuse within the family. The domestic violence that her victims have and the children who are experiencing extreme situations on closed walls. The figures provided by the General Secretariat for Gender Equality are illustrative. The following image comes from the SOS 15 900 national telephone support line:
Of the 5,549 calls, 4,283 relate to incidents of domestic violence, mainly with spouses or partners. Most cases are in Athens, Thessaloniki and Patras.
Social worker and family counselor Stamatis Pittas, who attended the event, approached these speeches with delicacy and sensitivity.
Anastasia Tzela, a lawyer and vice-president of the Halkidiki Municipal Council with her sound legal approach, gave another dimension.
The event was co-ordinated by Dora Babouri and was addressed by Costas Trakos, President of the Association of Professional Craftsmen of the region.
Then came an interesting discussion with the public who wanted to know the developments on issues that shocked the public through Tunnel.
Thank you for your love and your warm words, it’s a little.
