A new session of ‘Dialogues from the Library’ is here. This time the special guest is the Colombian writer and cultural manager Velia Vidal Romero, who will talk, among other things, about her life and her work Aguas de estuario (Laguna Libros, 2020).
Velia Vidal Romero is a writer and reading promoter. She directs the “Motete” Cultural Corporation and the “Reading and Writing Festival of Chocó” (FLECHO). She received honorable mention in the first cohort of the Certificate in Afro-Latin American Studies from the Center for Afro-Latin American Studies at Harvard University. In addition, she is the first winner of the Publication grant for Afro-Colombian, Black, Raizal or Palenquero authors from the Ministry of Culture.

Estuarine Waters “In these letters, Velia Vidal recounts her wanderings since she returned to Chocó, to the Pacific Sea, and dedicated herself to the promotion of reading and cultural management. With elements from her environment, she elaborates metaphors that account for her internal tide and the tensions between the center and the periphery” (Laguna Libros, 2020).
