Barbara Tenenbaum, a Specialist in Mexican Culture in the Hispanic Division of the Library of Congress, will give a presentation, “Vámonos: The Mexican Revolution in Sights and Sound at the Library of Congress,” on Wednesday, April 4, at 4 p.m. at NMSU’s Nason House.
The presentation will feature the Library of Congress’s Web site “Distant Neighbors: The United States and the Mexican Revolution” (http://www.loc.gov/rr/hispanic/mexico/intro_a.html).
In her talk, Tenenbaum will answer such intriguing questions as why Pancho Villa didn’t fight at night, how Tex-Mex food got started and why Mexicans soldiers understood fighting better than U.S. forces.
Tenenbaum is the author/editor of many books and articles about Mexico and the Library of Congress Hispanic collections. She recently donated many books from her personal collection to the NMSU Library.
The lecture is free and open to the public.
