Spotlight Author for National Hispanic Heritage Month:

Today's spotlight author and illustrator is Duncan Tonatiuh. His vibrant illustrations mesmerize! If you are interested in sharing beautiful art with your friends, family, or for your own enjoyment, take a look at his work:

The ISD library has a few of his works, and I would like to highlight Separate is Never Equal:

"Years before the landmark U.S. Supreme Court ruling Brown v. Board of Education, Sylvia Mendez, an eight-year-old girl of Mexican and Puerto Rican heritage, played an instrumental role in Mendez v. Westminster, the landmark school desegregation case of 1946 in California."

Come check it out or put it on hold!
