Date: 10/1/2012  
Location:
Round Rock, Texas (Map)
 

Throughout October, the Round Rock Public Library will present “Voces Americanas: Latino Literature in the United States,” an exhibition produced by Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

About the exhibit
For more than three decades, a literary renaissance has been going on in the United States. Through poetry, prose and drama authors illuminated the American experience for Spanish speaking peoples whose ancestry goes back to Latin American lands.

A celebratory survey of literary works by Latinos in the past thirty years, “Voces Americanas” presents images of authors, books, movie stills, public presentations and illustrations that were part of this literary renaissance. “Voces Americanas” is based on an original exhibition at the University of Houston Library that documented a quarter century of Hispanic publishing in the United States.

The exhibition will be available to the public from Oct. 1 to Oct. 31. For more information about viewing hours or to arrange group visits, contact Kate Jarboe, Adult Services Librarian at (512) 218-7014.
