MCAST lec­turer pub­lishes short sto­ries in aid of ALS Malta

The Malta Independent on Sunday - - LIFESTYLE & CULTURE -

MCAST Mal­tese lec­turer Noel Cachia re­cently pub­lished a book in Mal­tese en­ti­tled Ste­j­jer ta’ Dari u tal-Lum. Three hun­dred and twenty-five copies were sold and all pro­ceeds have been do­nated to Bjorn For­mosa on be­half of ALS Malta. The do­na­tion was pre­sented to For­mosa dur­ing a short cer­e­mony held at the In­sti­tute for Com­mu­nity Ser­vices at MCAST.

The book is a col­lec­tion of short nov­els that re­veal and por­tray ex­pe­ri­ences and show the emo­tions of child­hood. These oc­cur and are pre­sented in di­a­logues, games, feasts, places and times. These sto­ries cre­ate and bring about a cer­tain nostal­gia of past days and child­hood mem­o­ries. The re­li­gious el­e­ment and spirit is very strong and rep­re­sented in the short sto­ries. The pro­tag­o­nist ends in prayer, and trusts in God be­cause, “He knows ev­ery­thing”. Other sto­ries re­late to the love to­wards an­i­mals and the ap­pre­ci­a­tion of tal­ents pos­sessed by oth­ers.

Cachia, BA Hons (Mal­tese) has been lec­tur­ing Mal­tese at MCAST since 2008.
