An entourage of Mozambican writers is for the first time making an appearance at the Literary Festival of Poços de Caldas – the ‘Flipoços’ – in Brazil.
The Filipoços is now in its 12th edition, taking place this year between April 29 to May 7 in the Urca Cultural Space.
The event hosts African poets, novelists and songwriters throughout the program, with attendance by Ungulani Ba Ka Khosa, Paulina Chiziane, Pedro Mbate, Lucílio Manjate, Sangare Okapi and Dany Wambire confirmed. All activities with Mozambican participation are free.
The choice of the authors was made by festival director Gisele Corrêa Ferreira, who has for a long time observed the course of literature produced in Mozambique and how it comes to be read in Brazil.
As a result, she invited the six authors, whose presence promises to stir the Brazilian scene, where several studies focus on Mozambican literature.Source: catracalivre.com
