Libros perigosos: as autorías censuradas

September 20 - October 20


Through history lots of writters, had to hide their real name if they wanted to see their books published. Sometimes they were women, sometimes they were trying not to cause shame to their families, sometimes both. This year we want to shout out loud the real names of some of them, to make visible that they had to choose to hide their identities behind initials or another name for fear of rejection. Visit our display on the first floor to know more!
