“Soon after moving from London to Glossa in 2005 with her husband, Matthew, Sarah Bloxham found a rat. Not a live rat, but a petrified rat in the plaka by the church in the Central Square of Glossa. It was not even a real petrified rat, but it was so striking that it inspired Sarah to write a children’s story set in a fictional Glossa of long ago.
She persuaded people of various nationalities with houses in the area to illustrate the book and translate the English text into four other languages – Greek, French, German and Italian. All the work was done voluntarily in the hope that the book would be published one day and the proceeds devoted to traditional village celebrations which are not as common as they once were.
Mosxoula Giannopoulou and Antonis Falkis, proprietors of Café – Restaurant Plateia have kindly allowed their kafeneion to be turned into a gallery for the summer. The first exhibition is all about Sarah’s book.

It is open daily from noon until the restaurant closes. There is an opportunity to meet the contributors on Monday 10th July in the Plateia Gallery, Central Square Glossa from around 1 p.m. The exhibition will run daily until the 30th July and admission is free.”
