The HCHSAA Diversity Committee is excited to invite alumnae/i to share in its inaugural observance of Hispanic Heritage Month on Thursday, September 22 from 7-8pm ET! This year, we will host a virtual discussion of the book Kid Quixotes: A Group of Students, Their Teacher, and the One-Room School Where Everything Is Possible (HarperOne 2020), a revisionist project based on the classic novel Don Quixote, where immigrant youth are encouraged to develop and share their stories and dreams. Kid Quixotes was named winner of the 2021 International Latino Book Award.
Presenters for the event include teacher and Kid Quixotes author Stephen Haff, founder of Still Waters in a Storm, a one room school serving Spanish speaking immigrant children in Bushwick, Brooklyn and Diana Conchado ’79, ssociate Professor of Romance Languages at Hunter College, who translated Kid Quixotes into Spanish.
