Melted in the Pot: Hispanic Heritage Month Tour
“They’d like to think I have melted in the pot. But I haven’t, we haven’t.”
—Gloria E. Anzaldúa, Borderlands / La Frontera: The New Mestiza
The voices of Hispanic writers have always been a part of the American literary landscape. During Hispanic Heritage Month, we celebrate the incredible writing and achievements of Hispanic writers, from the first Puerto Rican librarian in New York City to the first Latino to win a Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. Immerse yourself in the rich history, captivating stories, and profound contributions of Hispanic writers, poets, and authors who have shaped American writing.
Spanish-language tours will be offered Saturdays at 3:30 pm.
This 15-minute tour introduces you to all areas of the Museum and following the tour you can explore all of our exhibits more in-depth. Melted in the Pot is offered daily at 2:00 pm when the American Writers Museum is open. The tour is included with admission and no advanced registration is required. Tours begin at the Museum front desk.
