Mozambique: Mapiko dance to be put forward for UNESCO's cultural heritage list
Minerva, Mozambique’s oldest bookstore, opens its new facilities in the centre of the capital today, in a “new concept in Mozambique which brings together a bookstore and a restaurant”.
Minerva & Continental will sell books, computer equipment and supplies, as well as offering a dining experience and a pleasant social space, a statement from the bookstore sent to Lusa announces.
The opening will also be the occasion for the launch of “Splashes of Water and Suns”, by Ivone Soares, deputy of the Mozambican National Resistance (Renamo), Mozambique’s main opposition party; “Big Eye on the Constitution of the Republic” [Olhão à Constituição da República], by lawyer Simeão Cuamba; and “Constitution For the Little Ones” [Constituição Para a Pequenada] and “The Tied Rain of Kamutxhukêti” [A amarrada chuva de Kamutxhukêti] by academic Teodoro Waty.
The event programme, which coincides with the launch of the 83rd Minerva Book Fair, also includes debates and exhibitions, as well as books at promotional prices.
Founded on April 14, 1908, Minerva Central, a printers, bookstore, stationery and computer company, is a Maputo landmark, and organised its first book fair in 1935.Source: Lusa
