"I like the rhythm that goes with poetry, I like to feel that you are captivated by the poem, that you are almost in it," said Camilla, who is known to be very fond of books in general and organized her own book club during the coronavirus pandemic and over the years supported several projects dedicated to reading for both adults and children.
