Life, work of writer César Vallejo to be celebrated at BYU April 8

The Brigham Young University Instituto de Estudios Vallejianos will mark the 70th anniversary of the death of well-known Peruvian writer César Vallejo in a bilingual dance and theatre celebration Tuesday, April 8.

The production, “Yo… solo César Vallejo (I… only César Vallejo)" will begin at 7:15 p.m. in the Joseph Smith Building Auditorium. Admission is free.

The dance and theatre production represents poems and segments of Vallejo's life, starting with his childhood in Peru through his final years in Paris.
