'The Story of Spanish'

Jean-Benoit Nadeau and Julie Barlow present The Story of Spanish at Busboys & Poets (5th & K Location). Félix Sánchez, Chairman and Co-founder of the National Hispanic Foundation for the Arts, will lead the authors in a lively discussion of their new book.

Thoroughly researched and enlivened with stories and anecdotes, The Story of Spanish explores the origins and spread of modern Spanish from its roots in Hispania's Vulgar Latin (the language that also spawned French and Italian) to its fascinating, global predominance today.

Internationally bestselling authors of Sixty Million Frenchmen Can’t Be Wrong and The Story of French, Jean Benoit-Nadeau and Julie Barlow now turn their attention to the Spanish language.

It is the passionate and intriguing chronicle of a vibrant language that thrived through conquests and setbacks to become the tongue of Pedro Almódovar, Gabriel García Márquez, of tango and ball room dancing, of millions of Americans, and of hundreds of millions of people throughout the world.

A glass of wine will be offered to the attendees at the end of the book presentation. The Story of Spanish will be available for purchase at the event.
  Co-presented by St. Martin's Press in collaboration with Art Museum of the Americas (AMA), Asociación de Líderes Hispanos, and the National Hispanic Foundation for the Arts.
