Hispanic Latino Heritage Month

In the News: FAU celebrates Hispanic Latino Heritage Month! (September 15-October 15, 2010)
These titles are on display in the lobby of the S.E. Wimberly Library on the Boca Raton Campus. The books are suggestions from the Hispanic Latino Heritage Month Committee members and FAU librarians, but this list by no means includes all of the materials we have on the subject. Thanks to Yandi, our student employee, for his assistance with this project.
