Gabriel García Márquez’s Private Librarian On His Life And Legacy

Oct 4, 2016

Gabriel García Márquez was a Colombian writer and journalist best known for popularizing the form of magical realism. His work blends the fantastical with the real and political, and there is no better example of this than his seminal novel “100 Years Of Solitude” (Harper And Row/ 1970). The book is considered by many to be the most influential piece of Spanish fiction since “Don Quixote.”

Host Frank Stasio talks with his private librarian Ivan Granados about his relationship with the famous writer. The NC Latin American Film Festival runs through Sunday, Oct. 9,
