Anne Benaquist is collecting names and titles for a Colombia Cultural Resources List that will be available to all by mid-February. Full titles, authors, and very brief descriptions (1-2 sentences) of works will be helpful. There are plenty of lists available on the internet and in travel books, but what we're looking for here is personal favorites that have been translated into English.
