Gala cards, two readings

Looking for some Christmas cards with a difference? Have a look at the cards put out this year by the Association for the Psychosocial Health of Children and Adolescents (EPSYPE). When children’s author Vangelis Iliopoulos asked four writers to create Christmas cards in support of EPSYPE’s Iris Center, they responded with humor and spontaneity. Angeliki Varella, Eugene Trivizas, Christos Boulotis and Iliopoulos himself produced the cards and said they wanted to repeat the experience next year. EPSYPE is a scientific, non-profit association that promotes psychiatric reform and the development of the community care model for the mental health of children and adolescents. The cards are available from EPSYPE (tel 210.6545402, website www.epsype.gr). Presentation Author Alexis Stamatis discusses his latest novel «American Fugue» (pub. Kastaniotis) with writer Stefanos Dandolos at the Evripidis bookstore today at 7 p.m. (Evripidis, 11 Andrea Papandreou [inside arcade], Halandri, tel 210.680.0644-6.)
