Brief-Cervantes Honored by Spanish Program

The Department of Literature and Language Spanish Program will be honoring the 400th anniversary of Miguel de Cervantes’s death.

Cervantes was a Spanish writer credited with writing and publishing the world’s very first best selling novel, “Don Quixote” in 1605. This novel was so influential that it was later translated into more than 60 languages.

In addition to Cervantes other works, he published a second part to the story of “Don Quixote” in 1615.

The highlight of this celebration will be a performance by Maestro Francesc de Paul Soler, a guest guitarist who will be touring U.S. universities for this celebratory occasion.

The concert will be Friday, Oct. 7, in the Recital Hall-Music Building at 7:30 p.m. For more information about this event contact Inma Lyons in the Hall of Languages Room 311 or by email, [email protected].
