Gabriel Garcia Marquez archives now in Austin

One cannot mention the title source of the Strange Pilgrims exhibit without  reminding one’s readers that the Harry Ransom Center recently acquired the archives of Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

“More than 75 boxes of documents constitute the archive of the Colombian-born author, journalist, screenwriter and key figure in Latin American history and politics. Researchers will have access to manuscript drafts of published and unpublished works, correspondence, 43 photograph albums, 22 scrapbooks, research material, notebooks, newspaper clippings, screenplays and ephemera.”

Wed. Oct. 27 there will be a webcast of acclaimed author Salmon Rushdie’s keynote speech for the symposium Gabriel García Márquez: His Life and Legacy.
