Minister of Culture declares that literary event to honor authors is located in São Vicente

Mindelo, 23 Nov (Inforpress) – The Minister of Culture said Wednesday, 22, in Mindelo, that the literary event to honour authors will be based in Mindelo, showing the intention of distinguishing other writers, in the near future, like Germano Almeida.

According to Abraão Vicente, who spoke at the end of the event that honored the Camões 2018 award, the idea that remains is that literary event has to be done in Mindelo, not in another place or on a different island each year.

“The literary event is fixed in Mindelo because of the Marginal, because of the city’s design, the urbanity of the city and I believe that other authors that we can come to honor in Mindelo will also be proud to see their works transported, read, free, open to the world”, he considered.

According to Abraão Vicente, with the literary event in honour of Germano Almeida, the city of Penafiel (in the district of Porto, Portugal) is connected to the city of Mindelo, because it was in this northern Portuguese city that the tribute was paid in 2021 and they helped to repeat it now, this year, on the island of São Vicente.
