Living Figueira 12 months a year

“M.H.’s blue eyes”, by Albertina Seco

The Municipal Public Library Pedro Fernandes Tomás receives, on May 20, at 4:30 pm, Albertina Seco, for a presentation session of her debut work “Os Olhos Azuis de M.H”, a youth novel that addresses very current issues, with illustrations by Soraia Ramalho.

Admission is free but subject to capacity.

Albertina Seco has a degree in Modern Languages and Literatures from the Faculty of Letters of the University of Coimbra and has been a Portuguese teacher since 1986. As a teacher librarian, she reads a lot and writes to give young teens real and made-up life stories that help them become GREAT people.

Soraia Ramalho was born in 2001, in Coimbra, and is passionate about the most diverse forms of communication. She grew up in Figueira da Foz, but her curiosity and taste for writing led her to the Invicta City, where she graduated in Communication Sciences: Journalism, Advice, Multimedia, at the Faculty of Letters of the University of Porto.

Interested in learning and making known the stories of the people and places of this city, she joined the PortOuvido team, a radio program inserted in the online newspaper Jornalismo Porto Net that, in November 2021, was nominated for the “Radio” category of PODES – Podcast Festival. In parallel, the desire to express herself through illustration grew, thanks to the projects of the design classes, which challenged her to create her illustration and graphic design page, Soraia Creations.
