Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s Ashes Are Going to Colombia

By Dianna Dilworth 

Nobel Prize-winning novelist Gabriel Garcia Marquez‘s ashes are moving from Mexico to Columbia.

Beginning in December, the remains will be on exhibit in Cartagena, the location where the author started his career. The Associated Press has the scoop:

The decision to permanently exhibit the remains at colonial-era cloister in the port city’s historic downtown was the result of an agreement reached between authorities and Garcia Marquez’s family, Juan Carlos Gossain, governor of Bolivar state, told The Associated Press.

The author of One Hundred Years of Solitude (1967) and Love in the Time of Cholera (1985) died in Mexico City in April 2014 at the age of 87.
