Journalist, writer and volunteer Melissa Hekkers will present her book Τι θα ’λεγε η Μεσόγειος (What would the Mediterranean say) by Armida Books, on June 16, at 6pm in Nicosia, at Evergreen, in the Municipal Gardens of Nicosia.
This is the Greek translation/edition of her book Amir’s Blue Elephant which was published in September 2020 and is distributed internationally by Armida Book. The work has been translated into Greek by Katerina Nikolaou.
In her book, Hekkers tackles migration through the experiences and challenges she faces as a female journalist but also as a volunteer, recounting her vast experience in refugee camps in Lesvos, as well as the stories of migrants found in Cyprus.
Based on real facts, the story is told through the eyes of a woman struggling to understand the harsh reality faced by asylum seekers. It is the story of those who fight for their right to freedom, their right to life itself.
This is a book written with immediacy and boldness, both for the way she approaches various issues related to one of the bigger problems of the modern world, the refugee crisis, as and the author’s courage to share with the reading public all the feelings she inevitably felt and feels in the challenging route for all.
The book has already garnered rave reviews from readers, journalists, humanists and writers, and despite the obstacles of the pandemic, the book will travel to a series of events in Germany, United Kingdom, Italy, Belgium, Greece and elsewhere.
The event will take place at Evergreen, located inside the Municipal Gardens of Nicosia, next to the House of Representatives.
