Finding St. Nicholas
To the undiscerning eye, the Turkish city of Demre is not much to look at, let alone stop for. Rows upon rows of greenhouses covered in clear plastic sheeting cover nearly every plot of land. The drab outpost in southwestern Anatolia lacks the luxuriant resorts and Turquoise Coast panache of such places as Bodrum, Marmaris, and Antalya, the latter a renowned haven for Russian vacationers.

La fascinate Teresa Proenza
Para que no se olvide: Teresa Proenza (1908-1989). Una espía cubana en la política, la cultura y el arte de México, es este libro ampliamente documentado del que su autor ofrece de adelanto a Proceso la Introducción y dos fragmentos (Secretaría de Cultura). Doctor en historia por la UNAM, sus indagaciones sobre la agente cubana, quien llegara a tener un papel destacado en el medio cultural gracias a su cercanía con Diego Rivera, de quien fue secretaria, son apasionantes y reveladoras. El volumen será presentado este jueves en la Sala Adamo Boari del Palacio de Bellas Artes, con Ana García Bergua, Ricardo Pérez Montfort, Carlos Martínez Assad, Carlos Illades y Carlos Silva, moderados por Carlos Guevara Meza.
