A Map of Scars- Book Signing

July 31 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm CEST

A Map of Scars

The book signing of a Map Of Scars is the first novel in a trilogy in Vienna. Meet the Novelist Moyra Sammut in the lovely atmosphere of Villa Vida Café for a lovely afternoon with friends and more.

From the back streets of Valletta in Malta, a chance discovery by her father forces Georgina Parker to make a decision that will change her life and those around her. She finds herself on a path to self-discovery at the brink of WWII; a journey that takes her across the Mediterranean to war-torn England and Europe. Will her dream to join the war effort cost her everything? Will she ever find the true love she seeks among the machinations of war?

About the Author:
Born and raised in Malta to a Maltese father and British mother, Moyra Sammut had an idyllic childhood, with both cultures instilled in her and her siblings. The blend of the two cultures, together with a fascination for World War II, was thus deeply rooted, as real-life events were passed on to her from both grandfathers, who actively participated in the war; one as an air raid recruit based in Malta and the other fighting in Anzio with the British Army. Ms. Sammut traveled extensively during her employment as a travel journalist, where she would document far-to-reach destinations in such vivid descriptions that it earned her a middle page weekly spread in local newspapers, which is where her love for writing became apparent as her popularity spread. In her first book, ‘A Map of Scars’, she conveys the memories passed on to her with intense and historic realism, which the reader is invited to delve into.
