Angolan writers association intends to spread books in Africa

Luanda – The new board of Angola’s Writers Association (UEA) intends to increase the spreading of national books in Africa and facilitate the mobility of the country’s writers inside the continent.

The intention was expressed on Saturday by the UEA chairperson, Luis Kandjimbo, during the ceremony of taking office.

The edification of a protection and collective copyright management system is also part of the UEA goals.

UEA is seeking to become a valid partner in the creation of public policies turned to culture, book and reading, said its chairperson.

Created on 10 December of 1975, the Angolan Writers Union aims at promoting the defence of the country’s culture as a heritage of the nation to strengthen ties with reading, literature and arts of other African peoples.
