Marie’s NPR Interview

“George Washington threw colonialists out of one country,” says the NPR, “but Simon Bolivar liberated six from Spanish rule.” In the interview that aired on April 13, the interviewer goes on to say: “Marie Arana has written a biography of the warrior statesman whose name is often invoked, but whose history is little understood. It’s called Bolivar: American Liberator. In it, we learn that Bolivar was passionate about freedom and, well, a passionate man, too. Arana is also Writer at Large for The Washington Post, as well as a novelist and author of the prizewinning memoir, ‘American Chica.’ She joins NPR’s Scott Simon to discuss Bolivar’s legacy.” Listen to the interview.
