Princeton NJ -- The Chancellor Green rotunda provided the setting earlier this month for a 400th anniversary celebration of the great literary work “Don Quixote.”

Graduate student Sonia Velazquez, who helped coordinate the event, spoke to the crowd during a public reading that included a multilingual “galaxy of quixotic texts.” The celebration also featured a film screening and an academic colloquium — all under the title “Book Errant: 400 Years Reading ‘Don Quixote.’”

The activities were organized by the Department of Spanish and Portuguese Languages and Cultures and the Humanities Council.
