Why should you attend?

“La nación sentida is a history book out of the ordinary and, as such, has the gift of reliving the passions forgotten by official history. When connecting different stories, Braun composes a fascinating text in which he manages to capture the sensibility of a country: behaviors, social strata and everyday life where the historical conditions and circumstances that gave shape to present-day Colombia are encoded.” —Aguilar

“[Nicaragua is] the most important book on Nicaragua published in the United States in recent years.” —Nicasio Urbina, Confidencial
