Mexican President Calderon's wife Margarita Zavala (L) and Sir Evelyn De Rothschild (R) help Colombian Nobel Prize laureate Gabriel Garcia Marquez after they opened the Soumaya museum in Mexico City in this March 1, 2011 file photo. Garcia Marquez, the Colombian author whose beguiling stories of love and longing brought Latin America to life for millions of readers and put magical realism on the literary map, died on April 17, 2014. He was 87. Known affectionately to friends and fans as "Gabo", he is arguably Latin America's best-known author and his books have sold in the tens of millions.
