ASU Professors Cynthia Tompkins, Elizabeth Horan and Carmen Urioste-Azcorra smiling in an office with books

Three women, three countries and hundreds of letters spanning five decades. Nearly a century later, three more women — also from three different countries — and hundreds of hours of painstaking sleuthing, transcribing, dating and translating. These are the basic elements of the new book, “Preciadas Cartas,” a collection of deeply revealing letters co-edited by ASU professors Elizabeth Horan, Carmen Urioste-Azcorra and Cynthia Tompkins.
