All New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs museums and historic sites, including the NHCC, are closed through April 9th as a public health precaution due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus). These closures are part of the larger effort by state government to minimize public exposure. With an abundance of caution, we are also postponing the book festival, scheduled for April 24 and 25th. While we consider new dates please continue to share our love of children's bilingual books and those by Latinx authors, below.
The Children's Bilingual Book Festival takes place at the National Hispanic Cultural Center (NHCC) in April of each year and features K-6 books in Spanish and English and Native Languages in English. There are author readings, a book fair, student storytelling, poetry performances, workshops for teachers and parents, and art and book-related activities for all ages, including teens. Join us!
Festival Partners: NHCC, Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, Bookworks, the Public Library (City of Albuquerque), University of New Mexico Press, Dual Language Education of NM (DLENM), REFORMA of New Mexico with funding from the City of Albuquerque and the National Endowment for the Arts.
