It’s time to… Read Portugal

This summer catch up on your reading. It's time to... Read Portugal.

Go back and find your favourite authors, review the stories that touched you in some way. Discover other worlds and other visions of this world. Let the Portuguese authors be with you for now. You already know some of them, but you’ll be surprised by others.

Get inspired by the sentence and discover... the writer, the work, how the Portuguese culture is present in the writing, and how Portuguese literature is universal and speaks of what exists in each one of us.

Look for these authors at your online bookstore. If you want to know which books are published in your country, you can search the online catalogue of the Directorate-General for Book, Archives and Libraries.

Good readings!
