Oy! or ¿Yo?

Living where we do means we are familiar with not only our own culture (or cultures, since in our school there are so many) but about so many others- New York city and the surrounding areas make up the quintessential melting pot.

Artist Deborah Kass' latest sculpture in Brooklyn Bridge Park expresses is that with the shortest possible word: OY from some angles and YO from others.

If you're interested in learning more about Hispanic culture through some classic Latino teen literature, our library is a great place to start. Here are some of the books we carry:

  • Nerdlandia (and others) by Gary Soto
  • How the Garcia Girls Lost their Accents (and others) by Julia Alvarez
  • The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros
  • Life, After by Sarah Littman
  • Flight and Other Stories by Jose Skinner
  • 100 Years of Solitude AND Strange Pilgrims by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Come in to the library and browse around- maybe you'll learn something!
