Banned Authors Reading During Hispanic Heritage Month
This is an article from the Tucson Weekly about an event I'll be attending this evening. I've had the chance to hear Munoz speak a couple times, and he's a great speaker, so I'm looking forward to seeing him with both Sandra Cisneros and Helena Viramontes.
From the article,
"The theme of this year's Banned Books Week is "Liberating Literature."
The three authors will address literature as a tool to learn about our
diverse cultural surroundings, and how having access to a variety of
ideas strengthens us. Muñoz hopes the event will make people more aware
of the empowering nature of books."
