As every year, on April 23 we take the opportunity to claim reading on Book Day. On this occasion we have had the collaboration of the main political representatives of Dénia to tell us what their favorite reading is and why.
We live in a health situation that is preventing practically any event and fair on Book Day. However, this same context is the one that has made many people reconnect with reading. During the past year on April 23 we were in our homes, but in them we discovered the indisputable support that getting lost between the pages of a good story offers.
Our politicians also enjoy reading and have wanted to join the celebration by recommending their favorite books and telling us what they have to deserve their recommendation.
Mario Vidal (Spokesperson for Gent de Dénia)
Mario Vidal did not want to keep one, recommending three readings that have marked him during the last year. The first, The time between seams by Maria Dueñas when we have the information. A book that affirms that it has enchanted him, especially for how it reflects that part of history from a point of view "very of the time".
The second of these books is An ocean to reach you, by Sandra Barneda, with whom he admits to having felt very marked by the feelings he gives off. And finally, Earth, by Eloy Moreno, which shows a vision of a very near future, "and the great lie of the current reality," says Vidal.
Susana Mut (Dénia Citizen Spokesperson)
Susana Mut has not been able to keep a single novel either. Your first recommendation is Tuareg scored by Alberto Vázquez-Figueroa when we have the information. "It is an adventure novel, which in addition to being very entertaining and entertaining, has a treatment of very important values, honor, and respect. The Tuareg's ability to fight and perseverance on stage, in the desert, is very inspiring. The narrative envelops you and takes you to that stage. "
The other book is A destiny of my own by Maria Montesinos. "This book has been especially interesting to me, since it talks about the first women who studied to be teachers and not governesses, about the prejudices of the time, and all this wrapped up in a love story. As a teacher that I am, it made me get into the role of the protagonist and being aware of the differences with respect to today's society. The story hooks you and you want to read a little more, "says the orange spokeswoman.
María Mut (Popular spokesperson Dénia)
The leader of the Popular Party of Dénia has stayed with Lemon bread with poppy seeds, by Cristina Campos, who assures that it has been the most fun of her recent readings. "It tells the story of two sisters who lead very different lives and who have been separated for a long time. Due to the illness of one of them they meet again to sell a bakery that they have inherited from they do not really know who.
Mut describes it as "a love story at all levels that makes us reflect on what really matters in life, leaving aside all that is left over. It talks about sisters, children, youth loves, hidden family stories, life of a small town in Mallorca and, in addition, he gives us recipes for different types of bread that were made in the oven and that we can make at home. It is a highly recommended book for everyone ".

Raúl García de la Reina (Councilor for Culture of the Dénia City Council)
The favorite book of the socialist councilor Raúl García de la Reina, who heads the area of culture of the Dianense consistory, is The Anachronópeteby Enrique Gaspar. This Spanish work is considered the first novel in which a time machine appeared, years before this artifact was introduced in his bibliography by HG Wells. The mayor, who has devoured the book on many occasions, tells why it is his favorite: "Simplement perquè té de tot. It is the first novel·la amb viatges en el temps i té història, adventure, romanticism, humor ... A complete science fiction novel ".
Vicent Grimalt (Mayor of Dénia)
Vicent Grimalt, when asked about his favorite book, he has chosen One Hundred Years of Solitude, by Gabriel García Márquez, The Name of the Rose, by Umberto Eco, and Cold-bloodedby Truman Capote. Although, by insisting, of those three he stays with Truman Capote. Why? According to the mayor, it is a question of "one d'eixes works that are going to mark an abans and a després in the journalistic field, the mateix author defined it as a nonfiction novel. This is a journalistic report with elements of novel·la. It narrates a real fet, with many details, dialegs, a definition of people and different points of view. But it is a free book so surprising and different for the time ".
