Mark your calendars for the presentation of a new book by Leonardo García Pabón, professor of Spanish, Department of Romance Languages. El cuento sentimental romántico en Bolivia (siglo XIX) is a 400-page anthology of short stories of the romantic period in Bolivia (19th century).
 
Mayra Bottaro, assistant professor of Spanish, Department of Romance Languages, will offer opening remarks.
