Next Thursday, February 26, at 7:00 pm, in the Hall of Acts of the Citizen Participation Center of Alcantarilla, located next to the Museum of the Huerta, CAVI Alcantarilla presents the latest book by Juan Álvarez WHY YOU DO NOT LOVE ME ?.
A wonderful book that portrays the cruelty of violence to women and proposes 10 formulas to change the course of many women who suffer.
A great header manual for any professional who works with this problem.
We will have the reflection and experiences of the author, Juan Alvarez, countryman (born in Mazarrón) and reputed draftsman of the magazine "THE THURSDAYS".
At the conclusion of the talk-colloquy that will be, the author will dedicate his book in a personalized way to all attendees.
WHY DO NOT YOU LOVE ME?
The book revolves around the enlightened reflection on macho maltreatment.
It is conceived with questions ... short questions about "the why", answered in turn with other questions.
The questions come from the souls of each of the battered women.
The author moves away from the real answers because he is not able to answer them;
It leaves in the hands of the reader, therefore, the responsibility to answer them, the freedom to interpret, at least.
To illustrate the questions, the author uses his experience as a draftsman, choosing a pencil stroke, clean and with the complicity of red, as a dramatic contribution in some cases, and passionate and sensual, in others.
