Keefe Manning - Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Penn State University Park

Book Title: Colombia by Color

Author: Benjamin Villegas

Book Description:

When I received tenure and was promoted to Associate Professor, I honored my paternal side of the family. I am blessed with the opportunity to honor my maternal side at this promotion to Professor. Since my mother was born in Colombia, being able to share her heritage and the beauty of Colombia is important to me. What better way to convey this by placing a photography book on Colombia to encourage library patrons to see the beauty and culture that the country has to offer. Despite the checkered past, Colombia continues to blossom into an amazing paradise.

Muchas gracias, Colombia, por ser el nacimiento de mi mamá!
