Following the annual awards ceremony celebrating Américas Award nominees, author/artist Duncan Tonatiuh, the Consortium of Latin American Studies Programs (CLASP), the Learning and Innovation Office, and the Hispanic Division at the Library of Congress offer a hands-on workshop inspired by Tonatiuh’s award winning codex: Undocumented: A Worker's Fight.

Participants will create visual reflections on their own life experiences and combine them in an accordion folded book displayed in the Hispanic Reading Room through Hispanic Heritage Month. This maker opportunity enables participants to experience hybrid reading and writing traditions through Mesoamerican codices and Tonatiuh’s book.
