Part of the Syracuse Symposium series.

La Casita celebrates Latinx/Hispanic Heritage Month with the release of a new bilingual children’s book, written and illustrated by the young participants in their dual language literacy programs. As a companion project to La Casita's current exhibit, "Abuelas; Ancestral Ways for Future Generations," this fourth annual children's book release contains short personal reflections and illustrations depicting the strong bonds between children and their grandmothers, memories of cherished experiences that shape who they are, and who they will become.
