Join Us in Celebrating the Donation of Orgullo de mi Tierra materials to our CUNY Dominican Studies Institute Library
Please join us on Wednesday, September 22, 2010, 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. to celebrate the donation by Centro Cuesta Nacional (CCN) of the entire set of books and videos of Orgullo de mi Tierra, an ambitious CCN project launched in 2009 to document each year a province or region of the Dominican Republic through documentaries, books, photography, murals, and other educational materials. The series began with the province of Samaná, and this year continues with Barahona and Pedernales. (CCN is the Dominican Republic's largest and most diversified retailer, parent company of Libreria Cuesta, the country’s largest bookstore, among other brands.)
We are deeply grateful to CCN for this wonderful addition to our Dominican Library’s collection, and for hosting the reception on September 22 to which they invite all of you our friends and supporters (their invitation below). If you plan to attend, please let us know. You can register by clicking here, or by phone to 212.650.7170.
