Global Santa Fe presents a book talk with Ambassador Mark Asquino featuring his new book, Spanish Connections: My Diplomatic Journey from Venezuela to Equatorial Guinea.
From Mark: “This is a memoir about my diplomatic journey to Equatorial Guinea, an ill-fated small Spanish-speaking country. I discuss the many stops along the way that finally led to my serving as U.S. ambassador to Spain’s only former colony in sub-Saharan Africa. This is the story of a lifelong fascination with Spain that began with a strange tale my mother told me about a mysterious uncle who fought in the Spanish Civil War. My assignment to Equatorial Guinea was the last piece needed to complete a full circle in my professional life that began in Franco’s Spain.”
