Description: The Americas Society promotes the understanding of the political, economic, and cultural issues that define and challenge the Americas today, from the Arctic Circle to the southernmost tip of Argentina. We believe that innovative artistic expression is vital to free societies and provides an invaluable window on the ever-evolving reality of our Hemisphere. Understanding the people and societies of the region is essential to promoting our agenda of democracy, the rule of law, and free trade. As a not-for-profit institution, The Americas Society is financed by membership dues and contributions from corporations, foundations, individuals and public agencies. This wide base of public and private support enables The Americas Society to offer programs of the highest caliber to a broad and diverse audience with a common interest in hemispheric affairs. The Literature Department of The Americas Society maintains an active schedule of bilingual readings, lectures, book presentations, and conferences featuring Latin American, Caribbean and Canadian writers and scholars. This diverse programming provides a forum for writers, resource information for literary professionals, and forges new collaborations with complementary institutions such as The Joseph Papp Public Theater. Many of the writers who have been presented in literature programs have been subsequently published in the Americas Society's literary magazine, Review: Latin American Literature and Arts. Literature activities in the past have included a subvention program for the translation of over 80 works of Latin American literature, including Gabriel García Márquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude.
