2010. Presentation of Siobhán Galvin’s collection of short stories Through the Eyes of Love
Siobhan Galvin (1962-2009) came from Dublin to live in Spain and create a family here. This highly recommendable collection of short stories embedded with her personal view of Spanish and Irish life is the first book from the COLLAGE* collection of new authors in English, French and German published by the EOI Fuengirola.
Dear Net surfers: you can buy this book. It’s got an audio CD and a separate workbook, too. I just read it (US) / I’ve just read it and feel totally thrilled about it. She gives a voice to human beings who do not usually have a voice in literature, because most literature has not allowed women and some me to have a voice. Literature needs a lot of people who have been traditionally denied a place in its History, because literature is a human event. This stories will mesmerize you for all of their humaness and their metaphorical resonance, which will keep you company beyond the enjoyment of the story itself.
2011. Mo Malone records Siobhán Galvin
In March 2011, the EOI Fuengirola published a booklet with activities, a glossary and a DVD with listening activities and the recording of the stories by Irish poet Mo Malone.
