The ‘New Latinos’ will be topic Oct. 21

The campus/community series “Latino Americans: 500 Years of History” continues this week with the screening of another film segment and a talk by a Peruvian-born author who will facilitate discussion during a program beginning at 6 p.m. Wednesday (Oct. 21) in the Christie Theatre of the University Union. “The New Latinos” is the topic of the guest speaker Marie Arana, a native of Lima, Peru, and the daughter of a Peruvian father and American mother. Her memoir, Chica: Two Worlds, One Childhood, was a finalist in various book competitions. The talk is the third in this year’s “Latino Americans: 500 Years of History” series organized by UW-Green Bay in conjunction with the American Library Association and a National Endowment for the Humanities grant.
