Latinx Heritage Month (September 15–October 15) is a time to recognize and honor the histories and cultures of Latinx people in the United States. Here at the Library, we are actively acquiring books that feature Latinx and Latin American voices. Check out one of these books today and join the conversation on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram using the hashtag #GULatinx
If you’re interested in art history and art criticism, we invite you to check out the groundbreaking book Radical women: Latin American art, 1960–1985, featuring 100 female artists with works in the fields of sculpture, photography, video, painting and performance art. Another treasure, Urbes Mutantes: Latin American Photography 1941–2012 is a visual exploration of urban life and public spaces in Latin America. The striking photos are accompanied by texts in English and Spanish.
