El Bibliobandido Commandeers the Annals of Caribbean Art: El Bibliobandido is a masked bandit who, hungry for stories, roves the jungles of Honduras where illiteracy rates soar at 80%, terrorizing kids until they write and offer him stories. Now, El Bibliobandido hijacks the annals of Caribbean art history, daring to commandeer an entire page of the Caribbean: Art at the Crossroads of the World catalog, edited by Elvis Fuentes and Deborah Cullen (Yale University Press and El Museo del Barrio, 2012).
