More than fifty people attended last Friday's presentation of the novel "Push Furious Wind."
The event was chaired by the Mayor of Mazarron, Ginés Campillo, and was attended by the Councillor for Culture, Education and Tourism, Maria Celeste Soria, author of the book, Pedro García Espinosa, and the press officer of the publishing house Atlantis Elena Higueras.
Pedro Espinosa Garcia began the presentation blurted out that "I am Mazarron, which is something, too bad that in 1960 had to go to Barcelona with my family."
From the outset it was clear that this Mazarron love he has for his land and also in the literature.
García Espinosa explained that "writing is like a venenillo, when you start beginning to create addiction."
"Push Furious Wind" is a story that links the narrative history.
His overview takes us to the eighth century.
A new religion, Islam is spreading with amazing momentum and speed for much of the known world.
Its leaders have already conquered several ancient empires and now have their eyes on the west, in a key territory ruled by the Goths in Roman times and known by the name of Hispania.
In this context, the young Yunnan Sufyan and his friend ben Abdelaziz undertake the search for a marvelous book, "The fate of peoples", inspired by God to King Solomon.
Starting from Damascus, the two friends begin a journey full of excitement, dangers, miracles and adventures in North Africa up to the newly conquered Hispania where, according to the evidence, is the same book.
The Mayor of Mazarron, Ginés Campillo, said that "we who should be grateful to the author and publisher who have come to present this book to Mazarron" and noted that the municipality "will encourage and promote such events as part of the cultural agenda will develop over the coming weeks. "
In this sense, we should mention the recent visits of Eduardo Sanchez and Rosa Muliterno Cáceres and an upcoming literary event to be held in late October.
A real commitment to the implementation of a quality cultural agenda is steadily increasing "and will reach its climax with the celebration of 440 anniversary of the independence of the municipality of Lorca Mazarrón."
