The Southlake Public Library Presents Voces Americanas: Latino Literature in the United States

Voces Americanas: Latino Literature in the United States is a celebratory survey of works by Latinos that introduces over three decades of literary renaissance by highlighting the experience of Spanish-speaking peoples through images of authors, books, movie stills, public presentations and illustrations.

It is based on an original exhibition at the University of Houston Library that documented a quarter-century of Hispanic publishing in the United States.

This exhibit will be on display at the Southlake Public Library from September 7 – 30.

The Southlake Public Library Hours are 10 a.m. – 8 p.m. Monday – Thursday, 10 a.m.- 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday and closed Sunday.
This exhibit is free and open to the public and produced by Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
