With the Attendance of Media Representatives
Dr. Georgette Savvides Holds the Book Signing of My Journey at Al Kotob Khan
Yesterday, Al Kotob Khan Bookshop hosted the book signing event of Dr. Georgette Savvides' Arabic version of her book 'My Journey', an autobiography on her own career path as a successful psychologist. With the attendance of media representatives, the book signing was followed by a seminar discussing the book.
The book signing event was live on Dr. Georgette Savvides' Facebook page. During the seminar, Dr. Savvides talked about what motivated her to write her autobiography and she wishes that whoever reads the book benefits from what she faced in her life. The book might appear to be an autobiography from the outside, but it carries between its pages a deeper look into the human soul based on her studies and the many patients she treated throughout her career.
