The Quarantine Tales
Facing the global pandemic, which in early 2020 confined the world to all the uncertainties of a blank page, Livraria Lello set a challenge: fill this blank with stories, witness accounts of the times we face and cast some rays of hope for humanity. This present collection includes the six winning stories. All of the 5 600 stories submitted for competition are living proof that human beings, even in the grimmest of times, are able to reinvent themselves through literature and to never lose their faith in a future worth dreaming about. Through the literature competition “Quarantine Tales”, Livraria Lello knew it would reach out to the desire of its readers to write.
