Vision +, in collaboration with The Writers Club and One for All and All for One, presents the official launch of the two new books – Unbroken Words/Kliem Infinit and Bejn il-Barrakka u l-Baviera. The launch will take place on 16th February at the Grand Hotel Excelsior, Floriana where doors will be open to public from 9am. 

The launch will be part of a greater event, which will incorporate an artistic fair, with various local talents showcasing their skills in a bid to give a much-needed boost to the promotion of Maltese culture. Various keynote speakers will also be present at the event, including Mr Anton Grasso and Prof. Oliver Friggieri, who will be speaking about the importance of literature and art in general in our culture.

With a great variety of different artistic talents, and the opportunity to meet with the different emerging artists in our society, the event will surely be able to cater towards different tastes. All proceeds from Unbroken Words/Kliem Infinit and Bejn il-Barrakka u l-Baviera will be going to a charitable cause (to build a school in Kenya and one in Malta).

On a different note, Alex Ferrante will do some face paint on whoever is present at the event, and wishes to have his face painted. This is going to be super fun for the kids who come along with their parents.
