Latin American Studies holds its first discussion group today on the novel 100 Years of Solitude from 3 to 4:30 p.m. in the Johnson Center, Assembly Room F. The discussion, led by Lisa Rabin, Modern and Classical Languages, concerns the genesis of the novel and its magical realism. The event is open to everybody.

A second discussion, “History and Politics in 100 Years,” is held Oct. 1 from 1:30 to 3 p.m. in the same room. It is led by Jo-Marie Burt, Public and International Affairs, and will center on the novel’s representation of political conflict in Colombia and its relevance to present-day political issues.

Copies of 100 Years of Solitude, written by Nobel-winning author Gabriel Garcia Marquez, are available in English or Spanish in the George Mason Bookstore at a 10 percent discount for faculty and staff.
