I named my first display “Cultural Journeys”. It was meant to showcase the many books that I have read that bring worlds together through the bond of human emotion. One of the very first books I remember loving was Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Of course, I do not remember much of it now, but I do remember being entranced with its wit and prose and the storyline of love that waits a lifetime. Junot Diaz writes with a similar style...
