Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the University of Macau: ChinesePortuguese Bilingual Teaching and Training Centre’s Book Club

In 1995, UNESCO declared April 23rd as “World Book Day”, as known as “World Book and Copyright Day”. On this day of each year, celebrations related to books are held around the world. Whether elderly or young, people enjoy the fun of reading. To celebrate this special day, the Chinese-Portuguese Bilingual Teaching and Training Centre of the Department of Portuguese of FAH has invited three famous scholars to share their insights on their published and/or recommended book(s). The content involves poetry, literature, religion, as well as culture of Macao.
