Autumn Cultural 2022

"Uma família nas ruas de Leça da Palmeira"

Presentation of the book by José Maria Cameira

José Maria Cameira's second book "Uma Família nas ruas de Leça da Palmeira" will be presented next Friday, November 18, at 21h30 at Clube de Leça.

"A Family in the streets of Leça da Palmeira" owes its existence to a lecture that took place on November 11, 2016, at the Clube de Leça, which aimed to explain the relationships between some of the names of the people who feature in the toponymy of Leça da Palmeira.

At the end of the session, José Maria Cameira was approached by the painter and Leça friend, António Mendes, who encouraged him to publish the text in a book, with his drawings about the people portrayed here.

José Maria Cameira will now present, in November 2022, the result of this "adventure", through the streets of Leça da Palmeira.
