Join the Kingston Library, La Voz, and the Reher Center for Immigrant Culture and History to explore The House on Mango Street with a literary parade through Midtown.
Your guides, local actors and students from CCE, will bring The House on Mango Street to life through word and dance at sites walking distance from the library.
Meet at the library to make your own Mango Street placard that you will carry with you as we parade through the neighborhood.
Back at the library, we will kick off the Kingston Immigrant Oral History Project with a launch party featuring local Latinx foods. This project invites immigrant Kingstonians to share and contribute their personal story to a collection that will be accessible at the Kingston Library and Reher Center and will create an historic record that centers immigrant voices.
