Washington, DC. – On April 24th, Former President of the Dominican Republic and President of GFDD/Funglode, Dr. Leonel Fernández, will present his latest publication, “Ideas en Conflicto. Diálogo póstumo entre Juan Bosch y John Bartlow Martin“, at the Organization of American States (OAS) in Washington, DC.

According to Fernández, this book can become key in understanding the relations between Dominican Republic and the United States in a period of particularly important political transition. He wrote this “posthumous dialogue” between Juan Bosch (former Dominican President overthrown in 1963) and John Bartlow Martin, former Ambassador of the United States in the Dominican Republic, with the intention of letting people know what really happened that caused Bosch to feel betrayed by the diplomat.

Dominican historians Frank Moya Pons and Juan Daniel Balcácer will also participate in the discussion together with President Fernández.

The book was officially launched in Santo Domingo in March 2019.

When: Wednesday, April 24th, 2019 at 5:00 p.m.
