Día de los Muertos

The Day of the Dead, a celebration originating in Mexico, occurs in connection with the religious holidays of All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day, on November 2. November 1 is also known as Día de los Inocentes, Day of the Innocents, for remembrance of deceased infants and children, also called angelitos, the little angels.

In addition to the documentary, Food for the Ancestors, the library has several books that shed light on this festive holiday.

All books listed are printed with both Spanish and English text.
