(2) Do you wish to honor the late, great Gabriel Garcia Marquez (March 6, 1928-April 17, 2014)?

"Marquez stands shoulder-to-shoulder with history's most important literary innovators," says Charles McNair, Books Editor at Paste Magazine and author of the novel Pickett's Charge. "His influence can be seen in the work of writers from every corner of the globe. That influence feels especially important here in Atlanta. Many writers I know acknowledge some degree of influence, small or large, from this giant of 20th-century literature."

There will a reading of 100 Years of Solitude by 100 volunteers to honor the Nobel Prize laureate. Will you be among the volunteers? Each volunteer will be granted three minutes until a total of 100 readers can be counted. You need not be a scholar or writer. All ages and nationalities are welcome and every effort will be made to accommodate participants. However, you must register at: charles@pastemagazine.com
