The Embassy of the Dominican Republic presented last August 8 the book Dominican Republic: Guest of Honor at the 78th Book Fair in Madrid. A graphic history. This is a volume that recalls, through photographs, each of the activities of the Dominican participation in the most important literary event in Spain in 2019.
The Dominican Ambassador, Olivo Rodríguez Huertas, presented the book (which can be downloaded from the Dominican Embassy in Spain’s website: embajadominicana.es) and thanked “so many people who contributed to making our participation in the Madrid Book Fair possible. At the beginning of the event, which was attended by many Dominican authors and intellectuals, the singer-songwriter José Antonio Rodríguez played the song Pescador y Sirena (Fisherman and Mermaid) with his guitar in memory of three outstanding figures who participated in the program of activities of the 78th Madrid Book Fair and who are no longer with us: Víctor Víctor, René Rodríguez Soriano and Alexis Gómez Rosa.
