Building on last year’s wonderful series of events to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, the University again has many things planned between September 15 and October 15.

The first event will be Monday afternoon, September 15, from 4:30 to 6:30 on the Library First Floor. Not only will we have great food and great company, but we will be celebrating the first donation to the Library’s new Colorado Chicano Movement Archives! Freddy “Freak” Trujillo and Deborah Espinosa will be speaking about the Chicano Movement and portions of Freddy’s collection will be on display.

Following this, the Second Annual Hispanic Experience Literary Showcase Reading will take place in the First-Year Center on the Library’s 2nd floor.

Finally, Adrian Montoya, artist,  will display a collection of retablos, small oil paintings on tin, zinc, wood or copper which esteem a multiplicity of Catholic saints.  Adrian learned the art form from classes he took at the community college in Las Vegas New  Mexico, studying under Luna Community College.

We hope you will join us in celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month. Refreshments will be served!
