ASK TIA TENOPIA 5.06.12
Hey, Peeps! Welcome to another fun week at Latinopia. First off, another in the adventures of Armie and Porfi–check out the Sergio Hernández cartoon strip! Dan Guerrero is away this week, but we have a guest blogger: ZombieMex. Your Tia is not really sure what this blog is about except it is a different way of looking at Mother’s Day. You should really, really check it out! Sara Ines Calderon returns with another firme insight in our Latino world–this time it as about mentoring–something we should be doing!
Our major this week is the final installment in the Librotraficantes Banned Book Caravan. In this final episode you’ll see the Librotraficantes finally arrive in Tucson, Arizona and deliver the censored books to the high school student of Tucson. You Tia has t admit I teared up a little on this one. To see this smart and intelligent leaders of our future as they discover the wonder of books! Hijole!
Also, to commemorate Mother’s Day, we are showcasing Pat Mora’s reading of her poem, “Mi Madre.” An eloquent homage to a mother of a different kind. And speaking of mothers, Latinopia is congratulating Dolores Huerta, who, in addition to raising eleven children, also managed to lead the United Farm Workers into numerous victories. She was honored last week when President Obama awarded her the Presidential Medal of Freedom award. Wow! Eleven kids and the Medal of Freedom, además! Go Dolores!
OOXX Tia Tenopia
