Praia, Apr 28 (Inforpress) – The technician at the National Archives of Cabo Verde José Maria Almeida, considered Tuesday that in Cabo Verde writers have difficulty finding ways to publish their books.
José Maria Almeida transmitted this statement to the media, on the occasion of his book presentation “Luiz Filiberti, Physico-Mór da Provincia de Cabo Verde de 1840 a 26 Outubro 1846: Subsídios para uma biografia e três peças arquivísticas inéditas”, which took place at the National Archives Institute of Cabo Verde, in the city of Praia.
As the author said, the work was ready at the end of 2019, but he could not get support from any institution for the publication of the book at that time.
“At the beginning of the pandemic, I sent the request to 10 institutions, but unfortunately there was no response. At the start the idea was to launch 500 copies, but we decided to reduce it to 250, as a way to reduce the budget we requested”, lamented José Maria.
According to the same source, he was looking for two or three sponsors for the publication of the book and the Interbank and Payment Systems Society (SISP) decided to sponsor, in full, the launch of the work.
