Victoria Hislop & Gill Smith, Maria's Island
VICTORIA HISLOP & GILL SMITH
THURSDAY 10TH JUNE, 7.00PM
Victoria Hislop’s phenomenal bestseller The Island has sold over 5 MILLION copies worldwide, including 1 MILLION copies in the UK alone. Now she returns to Spinalonga to tell the story of Maria Petrakis, one of the children in the original version of the novel.
A story that explores themes of isolation, prejudice and loss with great sensitivity, Maria’s Island is also a story about resilience, courage, and ultimately, hope.
Victoria will be joined by Gill Smith, the illustrator of this beautiful book, to discuss how the project came about.
