Este mês andamos a ler


Numa remota aldeia polaca, a excêntrica Janina Duszejko, professora reformada, divide os seus dias a traduzir a poesia de William Blake e a observar os sinais da astrologia, fazendo por manter-se afastada das pessoas e próxima dos animais, cuja companhia prefere; mas a pacatez dos seus dias vê-se interrompida quando começam a aparecer mortos vários membros do clube de caça local. Certa de encontrar respostas, Janina decide lançar-se na investigação do caso, chegando a uma estranha teoria que espalhará o terror pela comunidade.
Sob a máscara de policial noir ou fábula macabra, Conduz o Teu Arado Sobre os Ossos dos Mortos é um romance mordaz e desconcertante que questiona a nossa posição acerca dos direitos dos animais e responsabilidade sobre a natureza, bem como todas as ideias preconcebidas sobre a loucura, a justiça e a tradição.

Este mês andamos a ler



1984 oferece hoje uma descrição quase realista do vastíssimo sistema de fiscalização em que passaram a assentar as democracias capitalistas. A electrónica permite, pela primeira vez na história da humanidade, reunir nos mesmos instrumentos e nos mesmos gestos o trabalho e a fiscalização exercida sobre o trabalhador. O Big Brother já não é uma figura de estilo - converteu-se numa vulgaridade quotidiana.

Plano Nacional de Leitura - obra recomendada para o Ensino Secundário como sugestão de leitura.

Bem-vindo, Outono!


Uma borboleta amarela?
Ou uma folha seca
Que se desprendeu e não quis pousar?

Eleanor Roosevelt
The woman who made the difference

Eleanor Roosevelt was a pioneer in the Human Rights movement. She was born on the 11th October 1884, in New York.  This powerful woman, who was married to Franklin Roosevelt, was the First Lady of US during the II World War. In the White House, she was one of the most active first ladies in history and worked for political, racial and social justice.
There were many episodes where she showed her support to these causes. This is one example: in 1938 she went the inaugural meeting of Southern Conference for Human Welfare. There she sat directly beside an African American associate, ignoring the designated whites-only section. After being told that Birmingham’s segregationist policies prohibited whites and blacks from sitting together at public functions, the First Lady asked for a ruler. Then she said: “Now measure the distance between this chair and that one,”. Upon examining this gap separating the white and black seating areas, the first lady placed her chair directly in its center. There she defiantly sat, in a racial no-man’s land, until the meeting concluded. “They were afraid to arrest her,” one witness claimed.
Eleanor was elected delegate of the United Nations in 1946. This organization had a commission dedicated especially to Human Rights which was made up by eighteen members from various political, cultural and religious backgrounds. Due to her impact and effort she was recognized as the driving force for this commission and led to the creation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. 
For these reasons Eleanor is such an important figure in our History and everybody should see her as an example to be followed.

Alice Walker – Human Rights Activist

Alice Walker was born on February 9 in 1944. She is a novelist, short story writer, poet, and political activist. She is known for writing the novel The Colour Purple in 1982, which brought to her the National Book Award for hardcover fiction, and the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.
She is also known for being a feminist, who created, in 1983, the word "womanist" which means a black feminist or feminist of colour. Even nowadays, Alice is a big influence on feminists through her books and other works.
Alice Walker always wanted to change the rules of society. She has been a powerful feminist who fought for race equality. She is a “feminist of colour”.  The term was made to unite women of color and the feminist movement at "the intersection of race and gender oppression.
Through her writing career she explains us the obstacles and difficulties she had to fight against in order to protect woman’s rights. But she also did a lot for humanity as well, explained through her books and her speeches. All that was done along with being an activist.
And that way we think Alice Walker really took a step forward in humanity fighting for a more equal world.
