The Equatoguinean author A�scar Nchaso Bekari, following the successful presentation of his first book “Dreams” in Madrid, on 23rd March, organised a photography session presented by professor Sandra Schlumpf-Thurnherr, doctor in Iberian-Romance Linguistics, which travelled to Equatorial Guinea in January this year.
The book, which has been successful in Madrid, was also presented at the University of Basel (Switzerland), before a group of students and linguists from the Department of languages and Literatures, and it is also expected to be presented in our country.
The author gave the audience an interview led by Dr. Schlumpf, on the current and future situation in Equatorial Guinea. The doctor asked questions on the linguistic situation in the country, the advantages and challenges for the coexistence of various languages -Spanish, French, Portuguese, etc.-. She also spoke of future opportunities and challenges for youth in Equatorial Guinea and an overall vision of the future of the country over the next 10-15 years.
In reply, Nchaso Bekari first thanked them for the reception, and said that Equatorial Guinea was a multicultural country. He also stated that around 70% of the population is under 25 years of age, which is in itself an advantage, “I consider myself to be a very optimistic person. And when speaking about opportunities and challenges, I only see more and more opportunities; the challenges are no more than other opportunities”.
The author concluded by signing dedications for those participants who had acquired his book “Dreams”.
