You’ll notice a new eye-catching display in the library’s main area today: Latin American Literature (in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month which runs through October).  To celebrate, there’s an essay contest related to reading a book by a Latin American author.  Here’s how it works…

Choose a book by a Latino author.  Read it and then write a 500-word essay in which you explain how the literary work enhanced your understanding of Latin American culture.  By no later than Oct. 31st, submit your essay to your English teacher, Mrs. Williams, or Ms. Sellors.  The winning essayist will be awarded a $25 gift card to Barnes and Noble.  Good luck!
