Praia, Aug 13 (Inforpress) – Cabo Verdean writer Vera Duarte said today that she sees with “great joy and reverence” the renewal of Cabo Verdean literature, that is, the new voices are emerging in Cabo Verdean literature.
The author of the latest book, “Cabo Verde: Um Roteiro Sentimental, viajando pelas Ilhas da Sodad, do Sol e da Morabeza” published in July, in partnership with her niece Susana Duarte, a young diaspora from communication specialist, spoke in an interview to Inforpress on the occasion of International Youth Day.
