Book Presentation by the Australian writer Carlo J. Vella (Friday 9th May, 5pm)...
Carlo is an English teacher and writer, he was born in Australia and he is currently living in Barcelona.
Carlo wrote two other books before The Book of Secrets which was released in January 2010. The Book of Secrets combines an interesting plot with historical events, religion, life, love, fear, anger, passion and it gives some context before Carlo's new book The Thirteen Tortures (even though they can be read separately).
In The Thirteen Tortures the team from The Book of Secrets return to investigate the story of Santa Eulàlia, the patron saint of Barcelona, travelling throughout the province in search of what happened to a young girl of 13 who, whe asked to renounce her faith, she let her angels guide her to an unspeakable death. Little did she know that something else was amidst. For centuries angels have been building their armies to fight agains each other, but they have another enemy, its soul blacker than darkness- and it is coming. A horrific though sad, a tale that historically takes you back hundreds of years and returns you to the present where Mary and Gerard open a portal through a painting depicting the death of Santa Eulàlia.
Come to C/Pau Claris 106 BCN next 9th May (5pm-7pm), Carlo is going to talk about his book and it will be a perfect excuse to meet other interesting people!!!!
