681 - Heidi Trautmann - A word in my own right

My readers in North Cyprus will have realised that I have stopped writing for Cyprus Observer. This is due to merely private reasons, one of them being my new book that is hopefully coming out soon.

My book ‘Art and Creativity in North Cyprus – Volume II – with an eye on Literature and Theatre, and also including an Addendum to Volume I – that is an Update on the Visual Artists – has just been proof read both in English and Turkish and will now be handed over to a graphic designer for the layout.

While this is happening, I will have to undergo an operation on Oct 21 and will not be able to attend any cultural events in Cyprus for a while but I will continue to keep my website updated - according to the news I am getting via email - from the Rehabilitation Centre in beautiful Bavaria. Do not forget me and the arts in Cyprus!


Greetings, and see you soon
