Van Gras or Evaggelos Grapsas is the literary name of Mr. Evaggelos Grammenos, born and resident in Greece. A graduate of Political Sciences and Psycholgy, he dedicated most of his working years to translating the leading psychologists of our times, like ERICH FROMM, ALFRED ADLER, MORRIS NICOLL, KHALIL GIBRAN, SUFI WRITERS, P.D. OUSPENSKI, JIDDU KRISHNAMURTI and some more. These translations are still on the shelves of the main bookshops in Athens, Greece, after 3 decades from their publication by leading Greek publishing houses. Deeply inspired by these writings and teachings, he began writing, whenever inspiration was coming, in many fields, fiction for children and adults, poetry for children and adults, theatrical plays, psychological talks, which he broadcast for many years from a radio-tv station in Athens, Geece, books on self-knowledge and self-transformation,etc. He says that he is happy particularly for a simple work he did for the school children, which benefited millions of them in their begginings of learning: he recorded the readers of the first 3 grades of primary school on cassettes, so that children could listen to the texts of the readers and learn reading easily, simply, joyfully. This work was approved by the Educational Ministry of Greece and was used in schools. He suggests to teachers and parents to record simple texts for the children to listen and look, and so to learn reading with joy, and not with tears, as it often is the case. Many of his poems were put in melodies and recorded from him on CDs, often broadcast by the same radio-tv station. In all of his works, especially in his latest ones, like MONYNO, ANGELO LOVEFULL, RESTORATION NOW, he stresses the urgent need for a radical change in our mentality, from the egocentric and individualistic attitude, imposed by the patriarchal system, under which we live, to the mother-centered attitude, based on helping the weaker, the inferior to move to autonomy and humanity. He says that it is high time for women to take the lead for this change, as explained in his latest book RESTORATION NOW!
