Hello all,

Should anyone be cruising around the Adriatic at the moment, this event 
will surely be of interest.  The ILDS has sent copies of the Stephanides 
book to Corfu and has more available in North America (details TBA).

Best,
James

THE DURRELL SCHOOL OF CORFU invites you to the Launch of a new book

Autumn Gleanings: Corfu Memoirs and Poems
by
Theodore Stephanides (1896–1983)

at which the guest of honour will be Stephanides’ daughter, Alexia 
Stephanidi-Mercouri.

A Reception at 7.00 p.m. on Tuesday 24 May in the Durrell School - 
Philellinon 11, Corfu Town - Tel: (0030) 26610 21326 - will be followed 
by readings from this new book, from other works by Stephanides, and 
from Lawrence and Gerald Durrell’s writings about Stephanides, to whom 
they both owed so much.

Autumn Gleanings contains Theodore Stephanides’ accounts of his meetings 
with Lawrence Durrell in Corfu, Athens and Egypt in the period 
1935–1944, together with his last collection of English poems, which 
came to light only recently. The greater part of the material in this 
book has never been published before. The book is published by the 
Durrell School of Corfu in conjunction with the International Lawrence 
Durrell Society, and has been edited by members of the two organizations.

This evening also marks the relaunch of the Friends of the Durrell 
Library and is the first in a new series of monthly meetings for the 
Friends. Details of the programme for the coming year will be circulated 
at the Book Launch.
