PEN Club dinner in 1930

Handwritten captions on the reverse side of the photograph note that amongst those pictured are: Colombian writer Baldomero Sanín Cano; Argentinian writer Ezequiel Martínez Estrada; Argentinian historian Emilio Ravignani, and ‘Iris Moerga’, which could be the maiden name of the Argentinian poet Iris Pavón. This dinner took place in September 1930 at the Plaza Hotel in Buenos Aires.
