São Filipe, Oct 20 (Inforpress) – The heirs of the doctor and writer Henrique Teixeira de Sousa granted the Casa das Bandeiras Foundation, holder of the writer’s cultural estate, the copyright of his works, except for the novel “Oh! Mar das Turbidas Vagas”.
The administrator of the Casa das Bandeiras Foundation, Henrique Pires, told Inforpress that as copyright holder this institution will prepare with the National Library the reissue of the collection of short stories “Contra Mar e Vento”, published in 1972, providing “a large print-run” so that it can be sold at an affordable price to students.
The Casa das Bandeiras will mobilize sponsors for the reissue of the other works by the writer, who “best portrayed the experience of the Fogo society”, said the same source, stressing that the intention is on the occasion of the May 1st and the centenary of the elevation of São Filipe to the category of city, have all, or at least, most of the Teixeira de Sousa’s works reissued.
With the reissue of the works, many of which are not on the market, the idea is to put the books in the Casa das Bandeiras bookstore, but also in other bookstores in the country, so that people can have access to the works by the writer.
