Author Talk with Mario Bencastro, Odisesa del Norte


Join DC Public Library for an evening with author and painter, Mario Bencastro, to discuss his book, Odyssey to the North (Odisea del Norte). Odyssey to the North chronicles the story of Calixto, who comes to the U.S. from El Salvador, "with his stomach empty but his soul full of hope." The story takes place in the Mt. Pleasant and Adams Morgan neighborhoods of Washington, DC, as well as parts of El Salvador and Mexico.
