5:00-7:00 Cape Verde Book Fair: Books about Cape Verde and Cape Verdean culture and history will be on sale in a book fair conducted by the National Library of Cape Verde. In past years, there have been children’s books, cook books, fiction and nonfiction, and various books about the culture, history, music and literature of Cape Verde

7:00-8:00 Our Cape Verdean Legacy: 1935-2013: Anna Lima Delgado, the Internet’s “Creola Genealogist” blogger will present and interpret the “Cape Verde Poor Relief Stereopticon Show”, a slide show of images of the Cape Verde Islands from 1935. Ms. Lima Delgado will draw upon her extensive knowledge of Cape Verdean history, genealogy and culture to bring life to a famine relief slide show that was created in 1935 by New Bedford visitors to the Islands. The show will include seldom seen slides from the collection of the Library featuring daily life in Cape Verde in 1935 and notables Eugenio Tavares, Baltasar Lopes da Silva and Pedro Cardoso. 
New Bedford Public Library, 613 Pleasant St., 3rd Fl 
All events are presented by the New Bedford Public Library, the Cape Verdean Recognition Committee and the New Bedford Historical Society and admission is free to the public.
