The Hispanic Institute at Hodges University has announced plans to host a local author series, beginning with its first lecture on June 16th
at the University’s Fort Myers campus. The session, to be conducted in both English and Spanish, will be held from 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm and will feature local author Dr. Rómulo Bernal as the guest speaker.
Dr. Bernal is a graduate of the University of Cuenca School of Medicine in Ecuador and has practiced as a family physician for over thirty years in the United States. His first book, “Diseños Humanos,” describes an Ecuador of the past through a series of tragic and comical characters. Dr. Bernal lives in Cape Coral where he still has a medical office.
“The Southwestern region of Florida is full of national and local cultural talent,” said Carmen Rey-Gomez, director of the Hispanic Institute. “The Institute is creating a cultural series which will celebrate not only a host of individual accomplishments, but their cultural contributions to our community as well. We encourage everyone to attend and experience the richness of this area.”
The event is free of charge and refreshments will be served. For more information, call the Hispanic Institute of Hodges University at 482-0019.
