Sierra Madre, CA (Vocus) October 6, 2010
In ancient Greek, the word “hypomnemata” meant memoranda, or notes, or a notebook used to aid memory. Author Kenneth A. Symington finds it extremely useful to keep a written commentary of the things he hears, dreams, thinks, or fears, what interests him, and many more. Thus, he pens Hypomnemata, a book of stories, fables, and memories, released through Xlibris.
In no sense a diary, Hypomnemata is a collection of fictional stories, dreams, visions, word plays, metaphors, and personal memories about the human predicament and life’s biggest questions that seems worth remembering and developing. Accumulated over the span of a lifetime in various locations throughout the world, this account pierces into the depth of the human psyche and emotions.
Informative, memorable, flexible, and equally entertaining, Hypomnemata will appeal to wide audience, including interested explorers who enjoy a good laugh whenever circumstances permit.
Hypomnemata will be featured at this year’s New York Library Association Book Exhibit in Saratoga Springs, NY on November 2-5, 2010. For more information, log on to Xlibris.com.
