Hispanic Heritage Month

In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, the Foothills Library will host a public viewing of the PBS series “Latino Americans”.  This series chronicles Latinos in the United States from the sixteenth century to present day. It is a story of people, politics, and culture, large in scale and deep in its reach. The changing and yet repeating context of American history provides a backdrop for the drama of individual lives. It is a story of immigration and redemption, of anguish and celebration, of the gradual construction of a new American identity that connects and empowers millions of people today. There is no charge to attend. Call 928-342-1640 for more information.
