Photo Gallery: M and F at LOC

Aerial view of, among other things,
 the Library of Congress

Among the most meaningful partnerships that Letras Latinas has established in recent years is the one with the Library of Congress' Poetry and Literature Center (Rob Casper) and Hispanic Division (Georgette Dorn). What follows is a partial photo gallery of Fred Arroyo's and Maria Melendez's appearance at the LOC.
