History buffs gathered at The University of Texas-Pan American Library to enjoy a showcase of works related to the literary masterpiece "El Ingenioso Hidalgo Don Quixote de la Mancha." The commemorative reception and exhibit was hosted recently by UTPA's Department of Modern Languages and Literatures and the UTPA Library in celebration of the 400th anniversary of the book "Don Quixote" by Spanish author Miguel de Cervantes. Pictured enjoying the exhibit is Nayatzin Solis, a senior from Pharr majoring in education. In addition to viewing a variety of texts and works related to the literary piece, attendees also had the opportunity to hear presentations about its impact on Hispanic culture and view 10 statues and four paintings of Don Quixote as well as other paintings related to Cervantes' life. The exhibit at the library is free of charge and will be on display through March 1.
