About this Event

See the webpage for this event.

This event will present a new Newberry collection donated by the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) of award-winning Spanish and Indigenous-language children’s books.

The collection represents some of the best literature of Mexico and Latin America, and is intended to be a reference for administrators, educators, and academics dealing with the study and promotion of global literature in the United States.

The panelists will address the importance of culturally relevant literature, identify what is meant by ‘authentic’ texts, and postulate that the UNAM collection allows diverse readers to see themselves through these narratives, thereby raising awareness of their individualities while adopting new ways of seeing the world as intellectually and culturally indebted to Mexican culture and its Latin American literary tradition.

There will be a reception beginning at 5 pm and the program will begin at 6pm.
