Nobel Prize in Literature - Latin America

The CBC Library is currently displaying selected books from our collection by Mario Vargas Llosa, 2010 winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, along with those of the other Latin American laureates, in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month.

Short biographies of each author may be found in our Gale Virtual Reference Encyclopedia of Latin American History and Culture. Ed. Jay Kinsbruner and Erick D. Langer. 2nd ed. Scribner's, 2008.
