Libros Y Cine Set for Saturday

Goodwell, Okla. — Celebrations continue for Hispanic Heritage Month this Saturday, September 29th, at McKee Library at Oklahoma Panhandle State University from 1-3 p.m.

Hispanic American Leadership Organization (HALO) is teaming up with McKee Library to host Libros y Cine (books and a movie). While all ages are welcome, this free event is especially geared towards school-age children and parents are invited to attend as well. Snacks will be provided.

Members of Panhandle State’s HALO organization will be on hand to read to the students in attendance before the movie, Coco, is shown. Coco is a 2017 American 3D computer-animated fantasy film produced by Pixar Animation Studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures. The story follow a 12-year-old boy named Miguel who is accidentally transported to the Land of the Dead, where he seeks the help of his deceased musician great-great-grandfather to return him to his family among the living.

The day will involve a brief explanation of the Day of the Dead in Mexican Culture before the movie is shown.

HALO President Sam Ortiz commented on Hispanic Heritage Month, ““Hispanics: One Endless Voice to Enhance our Traditions” is this year’s theme. What better way to share our traditions with future generations of Hispanics and non-Hispanics, than to teach them the Spanish language by reading them short stories in Spanish, having some moments of fun and ending with watching a movie that shows exactly what Hispanics are proud of – our traditions with the movie Coco!”

No pre-registration is required. Participants attending without a parent must provide contact information for their guardian upon arrival.
