What a better discussion starter than bringing awareness to our cultura latina! Hispanic Heritage Month begins today, September 15- October 15, 2009. Many cities and regions, organizations, even our familias will be enjoying this wonderful time to become more acquainted about la historia y la cultura latina.
We will all participate in this celebracíon in our own special ways. Here in Orlando, our library has put together some amazing events. They include: a film preview, an art-after-hours event, and an author presentation. I will be attending as many events as possible. There is something exciting about learning of one's own heritage. It's almost like a treasure hunt finding the gems of culture, history and tradition through awareness and participation.
How will you celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month? Who will you celebrate it with? How will you increase your knowledge about la cultura latina?
Ciao for now!
