    Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month at Penn State Berks

    Penn State Berks Latino Forum 2022

    Friday, October 14 10:00 AM EDT

    Penn State Berks invites you to celebrate our tenth annual Latino Forum. This year the event will be in-person with the option of a live stream virtual webinar. The Latino Forum is the celebration of the Hispanic/Latino culture and identity as well as a commitment to the Hispanic/Latino community. This is a safe space where faculty, staff, and students can reflect upon the challenges facing their junior and senior years in high school.

    This year's Keynote speaker is Javier Ávila. In his one-man show this celebrated author sheds light on the American Latino experience with his unique brand of poetry. The high-octane, poignant, and hilarious one-man show The Perfect Latino consolidates Ávila’s talents as a poet and professor. The show is a blend of comedy and poetry to explore the American Latino experience that examines the issues of language, race, and belonging in an eye-opening performance where Ávila engages the audience.

    All Hispanic/Latino high school students, their families, teachers, and mentors are invited and encouraged to join us for this event.
