    Pordenài book festival


    ___________________

    "The Pordenài book festival is a yearly meeting point of cultures, stories and people; a friendly and neutral ground for traditions and customs to weave together with innovation and progress"

    _________THE FESTIVAL
    First introduced by the then Mayor Bernà Ciberûs in 1984 in an effort to promote the town, it slowly reached nation-wide fame and, and in the early 2000s, started to attract foreign writers that found it an easy way to advertise their stories in the Friulian market.
    In June 2016 Mayor Matèi Çivalîr decided to grant the use of the ground floor and the plaza of the town hall to the event organizers, offering more room for even more authors to join; the same year the "Ģalùt" award was created to reward the best book of Gallia, the golden statue of a capercaillie, chosen as symbol of Gallia by the town, was first given to the Friulian author Jusèp Placegnòve.
    This year the festival will also give a monetary prize to the best book of Europe in an attempt to expand further the importance of the event.

    Book title: Il drâc!
    Author: Benjamìn Talâr
    Gallia or beyond?: Gallia
    Summary: in the early morning of the first of August AD 746, the village of Çerneglòns was awaken by a loud thud coming from the then called Spiçonàlt lake.
    Before the residents could get out of their houses a big wave from the lake flooded the dirt streets of the village, the lord of a small nearby castle tried to calm the scared people, but many wanted to flee, someone shouted a dragon fell in the lake and was sleeping in the deep, waiting to come back; only the arrival of a garrison of the Patriarchate from Cividât calmed them down.
    The Bishop of Cividât, Mons. Claude "il Serèn" Charpèn, arrives few weeks later with the order to investigate and finally reassure the peoples living by Spiçonàlt, so they could focus back on the farmlands.
    The book tells the story behind the now called "Dragòn" lake, the first time such a recollection of events has been completed, but includes also many of the legends behind the event, and masterfully paints the everyday life of the Friulians of the time, from the benefits and constrains of the clergy, to the difficult but free existence of the common folk.

    Book title: Mon petit bonheur
    Author: Marie-Hélene Chambord
    Gallia or beyond?: Serenierre -- Gallia
    Summary: The literary romance novel follows the budding love between a soldier and his hometown sweetheart. With the backdrop of the Seven Days War, the novel explores the theme of love and separation while also delving into the impact of war on soldiers' psychological health. The novel is the first Serenien novel to address the effect of Operation Zephyr on Serenien soldiers.

    Jean is a farmer's son who joined the army. Guinevere is the village tailor's daughter. They both have known each other their whole lives. Everyone thought they would get married. But when the Seven Days War interrupts their courtship, will their love survive the war? Or will the War claim more from them?

    The Novel was banned in Serenierre for some time after its release until the Supreme Court ruled in favour of the publication of the book.
