Presents Thalia Book Club: A Literary Celebration!

Gabriel Garcia Marquez' One Hundred Years of Solitude

One Hundred Years of SolitudeWriters, including Oscar Hijuelos (Pulitzer Prize winner of The Mambo Kings Play Songs of Love) and Esmeralda Santiago (When I was Puerto Rican) discuss Gabriel García Márquez' masterpiece-the gorgeous, moving, passionate story about the history of a family and a mythical Latin American country-which won the author the Nobel Prize in Literature.
This event will include a performance of Judah Adashi's Songs and Dances of Macondo with music by Quintet of the Americas and a reading by Sonia Manzano.

The fictional town of Macondo is the setting of Gabriel García Márquez' One Hundred Years of Solitude. This suite for woodwind quintet (here imagined as a band of street musicians) was conceived as a songbook, inspired by musical elements and episodes in the novel.

A part of  Sonidos  Tickets $25; Member $21; 30 & Under $15
