The book “Mouras Encantadas e Outra Lendas”, with 18 illustrations by Ana Cristina Martins, will be presented this Friday, September 29th, from 14pm, at Escola EB00 de Pêra (Silves).

Ana Cristina Martins was born in Angola, in 1964. Descendant of families from Albufeira, she moved to Armação de Pêra after decolonization.
An accountant, he even attended a degree in History and Archeology, which he did not complete due to the difficulty of combining family life with studies. Self-taught, he has dedicated himself to illustration and writing, creating illustrated books dedicated to the school community, influenced by his close relationship with his four grandchildren.
«Mouras Encantadas e Outra Lendas» is his first published work.
