Hispanic Heritage Month
Join us for a sneak peek of the picture book “Viki & A Summer of Change / Viki y un Verano de Cambio” inspired by actual events in 1969. Written by local author Raquel M. Ortiz and author-activist and former Young Lord, Iris Morales, the story is about Viki and her big sister, Valentina. The sisters join neighbors and activists from the Young Lords Organization to sweep streets, pile up trash, and protest awful conditions. They show that when people unite they can change their world. Then join Raquel and LPLS staff Niccole Paytosh to make a “change for good” jar. Preregistration required.
