Happy first day of school! Take some time between your new classes and studies to check out some of our book displays for the month.
– Hillbilly Elegy / Appalachia –
To support the One Book One DU Initiative for Hillbilly Elegy, September’s book display focuses on the Appalachia region. Novels, poetry, and nonfiction explore this important region’s culture, history, industries, and struggles. Affrilachian authors, a multicultural group that encompass many diverse viewpoints and lived histories in the Appalachian region, will be the focus of the display to boost their unique voices. The display includes works by Affrilachian poets, memoirs and stories of growing up in Appalachia, and books on the region’s history. Take a look through these books and start discovering this fascinating part of our country.
– Latinx Heritage Month –
Latino or latina? How about Latinx? Latinx is a gender neutral term for Latino/ Latina that allows for many groups of people to be included and represented. The month between September 15 and October 15 celebrates the histories, cultures, and contributions of Latinx people. In support of the Latino Student Alliance, this display explores books with uniquely Latinx themes.
