With the National Book Festival in Washington, D.C. this weekend, Latin Pulse devotes this special program to the literature of Latin America. The program features an interview with an award-winning Mexican author and goes in-depth on the literary themes contrasting newer writers with the older generation of Latin American writers. The program also features a commentary on the trade bloc known as Mercosur.
