The first book I read this year was Nikos Kazantzakis' Freedom and Death (Original title Kapetan Mihalis). I adored it. Fierce Captain Michael in Crete of 1889 swears not to laugh until Crete is free from the Turks. A man loyal to his beliefs ends up to fight all by himself against the enemy.
International Nikos Kazantzakis Friends Company to present the book. That took place on the 21st March, on the International Poetry Day.
We were again packed and every one enjoyed our presentation and the tsikoudia they tasted afterwards along with some great Cretan live music.
