In a special edition of Literatura Oral, Deputy Editor Emily Neil and Content Producer Michelle Myers join Lily Ayllón to discuss “Cien Años de Soledad” by Gabriel García Márquez — with a millenial twist. 

“A Hundred Years of Solitude” takes us to the town of Macondo, which was founded by the Buendía Family. This story not only gives us insight into the history of South America, but it also explores the conflicting lifestyles of traditional families. Listen as Emily, Michelle and Lily speak about how this story is still a reference to current societal concerns, and explore the Drama with a capital "D" that is the Buendía family's trials and travails in Macondo.
