Day of the Dead Exhibit

 Friday, October 21, 2016 to Friday, November 18, 2016

The staff of the Latin American Library has prepared an altar celebrating the Day of the Dead. As is traditionally done in Mexico, we honor many people connected to the LAL who have passed away. The calaveras on exhibit were collected by the late Martha Robertson (1926-1992) and are part of the Donald and Martha Robertson Collection.

Come by and see our exhibit in the LAL special collections reading room and learn about the history of the Day of the Dead celebration in Mexico.
