Cuban book stands out at International Fair in Bolivia

La Paz, Aug 7 (Prensa Latina) The book “Perro Viejo” (Old Dog) by Cuban writer Teresa Cardenas, which received Casa de las Americas Award in 2005, stood out on Monday among Bolivian readers attending the 27th International Book Fair in La Paz.

“Perro Viejo” rescues those stories sometimes unknown to our Afro-descendant peoples, what they suffered, what the slave lived through, what they experienced, torture, death, but above all, resistance,” said Cardenas in an interview granted to Prensa Latina.

Referring to Perro Viejo, the manager of the State Publishing House Estela Machicado considered it a contribution to decolonization and the struggle against discrimination.

Machicado noticed that the book’s value made the publishing house choose it for its Biblioteca Popular collection, which aims to bring knowledge closer to the people.
