• Two non-profit organizations, Milibrohispano and El Centro Hispano, come together to consolidate the annual celebration of the Hispanic Heritage Book Fair Milibrohispano in the city of Durham, NC.
Miami, March 1, 2022. Hispanic Heritage Literature Organization / Milibrohispano, chaired by the writer Pilar Vélez, in alliance with El Centro Hispano, chaired by Pilar Rocha Goldberg, and the collaboration of the Consulates General of Mexico and Guatemala in Raleigh; Strength and Multiple Union (FUM); Asheboro Latinx Services, Inc.; the Association of Hispanic Professionals, Snow Fountain Press; Thrivent; Takiri, Carambolo.org, Miami Poets and Writers, and North Carolina Latina Magazine; among other organizations, they call for the second edition of the Hispanic Heritage Book Fair Milibrohispano in Durham, North Carolina, to be held between April 21 and 23, 2022. It is a great and unprecedented cultural event, dedicated to Guatemala and Mexico , which will feature a program of activities in various schools, a book fair, cultural events and academic talks.

The Hispanic Heritage Book Fair Milibrohispano is an institutional program of the Hispanic Heritage Literature Organization / Milibrohispano, created in 2018, which has a history of annual events at the national and international level, bringing together writers, artists, organizations, teachers , students and the community in general. During the fair, books in Spanish, English and bilingual editions are promoted and sold, workshops, talks and conferences are given, while the artistic and cultural agenda of the Spanish-speaking countries is integrated with exhibitions of art, gastronomy, folklore, music and theater. Pilar Vélez, creator of the program, comments that “in the Hispanic Heritage Book Fair, literature stands out, the cultural richness of Spanish-speaking countries, the inclusive environment that integrates, exalts and encourages the development of talent, and promotes those values that they forge the harmonious coexistence of the communities”.

The first edition of the Hispanic Heritage Book Fair in North Carolina was held in Durham, in 2019, at The School for Creative Studies. Students, teachers, parents, the local library and guests participated in this activity, thanks to the leadership of Professor Mary Soriano, cultural ambassador of Milibrohispano and director of the Hispanic Heritage Book Fair Milibrohispano in North Carolina, who comments that “in this second edition, the fair expands its geographical coverage in the state, holding for the first time a book fair in the city of Henderson and extending the duration of the Durham fair to three days with a program that includes a variety of events in The Hispanic Center, located at 2000 Chapel Hill Rd., Durham, NC 27707, where booths will be available for the sale of books until April 23 and workshops and presentations will be offered at no cost to the public.

The Hispanic Center is a non-profit institution whose mission is to work to strengthen the community, build bridges and advocate for equity and inclusion, a commitment that it has developed since its founding in 1992. The institution is chaired by Pilar Rocha-Goldberg, who stated that “for the entity it is very important to bring the second edition of the Hispanic Heritage Book Fair Milibrohispano to Durham, since we have a diverse community in which it is necessary for people to share their different points of view through literature and other artistic and cultural manifestations. This event gives underrepresented minorities a space to highlight their creative expression; everyone in the community should feel welcome to contribute and share their cultural expression in different ways.” The Hispanic Center has collaborated with its infrastructure and resources so that the guest writers and the city can enjoy a representative and inclusive cultural act with growth projections.

The Durham program includes a lecture by Dr. Luis Alberto Ambroggio entitled “United States Hispanic” and the participation of the Society of Hispanic Professionals and the Consulates General of Guatemala and Mexico in Raleigh as exhibitors. On April 22, the writers will visit Burton Magnet Elementary School, EK Poe Elementary School, and The School for Creative Studies (Middle and High School). As a closing activity, on Sunday, April 24, El Centro Hispano has organized a tour of the triangle of North Carolina in the tourist goat “La Patialegre” to say goodbye to the writers.

As usual, in each edition of the fair, Milibrohispano recognizes a member of the community who stands out for their valuable contribution to cultural progress. In this event, the organization will deliver the “Hispanic Leadership” award to the Puerto Rican artist Rafael Osuba, who for almost three decades has served the community as an artist, storyteller, author, editor, producer, curator, defender of art, founder of Don Quixote Festival and pioneer of countless artistic and cultural initiatives for almost three decades.

It should be noted that one of the most important purposes of this event in North Carolina is to found three community libraries, two of them in Henderson and Hickory, another in the headquarters of El Centro Hispano, for which they have the support of the community , the organizations and the writers’ guild of Milibrohispano.

Hispanic Heritage Literature Organization / Milibrohispano and El Centro Hispano would like to thank cultural and humanitarian organizations, academic institutions and the community in general for their support and generosity towards the writers and artists who will gather during the editions of the Hispanic Heritage Book Fair in Durham, NC.

Hispanic Heritage Literature Organization / Milibrohispano thanks all the people and public and private organizations that in one way or another support the celebration of the fair, and invites the community to join the different scheduled events.
