Hispanic Heritage Month

Today is the start of Hispanic Heritage Month and is a time to celebrate the accomplishments, heritage and culture of Hispanics.  September 15th is the anniversary of the independence of Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua in 1821, and followed shortly thereafter by Mexico, Chile and Belize. If you would like to learn more about Hispanic Heritage Month, see this site by the Library of Congress.

We honor these Hispanic authors whose works are in the Miami University Libraries' collection.  Choose an author you haven't read and add them to your reading list!
