Flipelo

Solisluna was present at another edition of the Pelourinho International Literary Festival - Flipelô -, which took place from August 10th to 13th, in Salvador. There were intense days of activities and exchanges of knowledge between authors, readers and everyone who attended the event. This year's honoree was Mãe Stella de Oxóssi, (1925-2018), who released her last book, ' A Ialorixá e o Pajé ' , by the publisher, in 2018.

The work's illustrator, Enéas Guerra, co-creator of Solisluna, participated in the 'Ancestry, Wisdom and Religiosity' panel, and recalled the days he lived with Mother Stella during production. Asked what the author's reaction was when she saw the illustrated book, the visual artist replied: “She kissed me on the forehead. I received that kiss as a blessing.” The debate also included contributions from the writer and illustrator Edsoleda Santos and the professor at the Federal University of Bahia (Ufba), Nelson Pretto.

Members of the Solisluna team, Luiz Afonso Costa (' Transbordos ' ), Esteban Vivaldi ( ' Roma Negra ' ), Iêda Marques ( ' Souvenirs, Imaginary and Reality ' ) and Sara Bertrand ( ' Out there, the Ghosts ' and ' A Memória do Bosque ' ) were also at Flipelô.
