The Oxford College Library is working with Professor Cristina Tarazona and her students to put together a display in honor of National Hispanic Heritage Month. Hispanic Heritage Month runs from September 15 to October 15 and celebrates the contributions and diversity of the Hispanic population. Professor Tarazona and her students are putting together a collage to showcase the Spanish speakers here at Oxford. You can see the collage and check out our book display.
This display includes books by some of the most celebrated Hispanic authors. Read Isabel Allende’s Daughter of Fortune, a historical adventure exploring the mixture of cultures in the western United States in the mid-19th century. Check out Elizabeth Acevedo’s The Poet X, which explores the trials of growing up with beautiful prose. Enjoy a classic like Gabriel García Márquez’s Love in the Time of Cholera.
In addition to our Oxford College Library display, check out events happening across Emory this month. Candler School of Theology is hosting several events students can attend in person or virtually. You can also check out the Latinx pop-up exhibit at Robert W. Woodruff Library on Level 2. Take some time this month to appreciate the history of the Hispanic population!
