O Abecedário is the Literary festival of Lisbon that has the main goal to promote the street bookstores by doing a tribute to a word.
Every year are explored all the meanings of one word in the vision of writers, thinkers, stage directors, cultural managers by doing gatherings, literary coffee meetings and staged readings, that have place in bookstores, coffees and libraries in Lisbon. In the first edition the chosen word was frontier , in the next year will be Fado.
This event is promoted by the Cabine de Literatura (Literature cabine) which is one network of micro libraries in old telephone booths that was born in 2014 in the Praça de Londres in Lisbon - with the collaboration of many bookstores and the support of the Direção-Geral do Livro, of the archives and libraries of the Câmara Municipal de Lisboa, and the program Bookstores with history of the Juntas da Freguesia and APEL.
