Latino Heritage Month guest speaker

Date and Time:
24 September 2013
12:30 PM - 1:30 PM
Jordan Student Academic Center (JSAC) - Multipurpose Room

Award-winning author and activist Tony Diaz, known as "El Librotraficante," which is Spanish for "the book smuggler," will be a Latino Heritage Month guest speaker.

Diaz is the founder of Nuestra Palabra: Latino Writers Having Their Say to help promote Latino literature and literacy. He also helped form the Librotraficante Movement in response to Arizona's prohibition of Mexican American Studies and the banning of books by hispanic authors. According to the New York Times, "Mr. Diaz is the imperasario behind an inspiring act of indignation and cultural pride." Diaz is the author of the award-winning novel, The Aztec Love God.

During the presentation, "No Sign of Our Culture Shall be Banned," there will be an unveiling of a new international sign for "librotraficante."
