Last 17th of May we celebrated, as usual, our Letras Galegas Day. It is one of the most important dates for our culture.
As you may know, this date conmemorates the publishing of Cantares Gallegos in 1863, by Rosalía de Castro. Every year it is dedicated to a Galician writer who has passed away and has been important for Galician literature.
This year Letras Galegas honoured Xela Arias, a Galician writer who worked as a teacher, a translator and of, course, as a writer.
We learnt a lot about her life and work, and created some pieces inspired by her literary works:
We decorated this bookmark and also created a cootie catcher:
