On Friday, 25th November 2016, ePublisher team from Portugal organised an excursion visited Viana do Castelo, the place where Álvaro Feijó, a very famous poet who also lived in Lousada, was born.
Álvaro Feijó was born in “Casa da Carreira”, where now the City Hall of the Municipality of Viana do Castelo is located.
The group consisted of about 40 people and we were received by the Councilor of Culture of the Municipality of Viana, who read some poems by Álvaro Feijó.
Álvaro Feijó died in 1941 when he was 25 years old, but two of his nieces joined the group to show us and explain how life was in the house at the time the poet was alive.
It was a very enjoyable and worthwhile excursion.
On 20th October 2016 in the church of Varissuo in Turku a poetry evening dedicated to Armas Hiiri, the ePublisher poet of the month was organised.
On a rainy morning of the 7th of October, a large group of the most active participants of the ePublisher project – poets, translators and lovers of the poetry, went on an exciting trip to the poetic Kaunas, the 2nd largest Lithuania’s city, resting at the confluence of country’s two largest rivers, Neris and Nemunas.
