Muy Caliente Musica

Latin music will forever remind me of my honeymoon in the Dominican Republic.  Recently, I took a Zumba class at the Hannah Community Center and now latin music reminds me of zumba!  Whatever the reason, I love latin music!  It puts me in a good mood, provides a boost of energy and makes me smile - even though I know very little of the Spanish language!  Luckily, ELPL has many awesome latin music choices both on CD and with Hoopla.  Here are some of my favorites:

The Last Don II by Don Omar
La Historia de el Duo by Wisin & Yandel ("The Duo of History")
Double Vision by Prince Royce  (with appearances by Snoop Dogg and J Lo!)  
A Quien Quiera Escuchar by Ricky Martin ("To Those Who Want to Listen")
Dale by Pitbull

Across Generations Videofest

When Michele Norris spoke at the Wharton Center on September 15, 2014 as part of the One Book, One Community program, she told the audience to talk to our parents, grandparents, our aunts and uncles, our elders to hear their stories. She said we need to have conversations with our elders to preserve our family histories or to know where we came from.
