Aggies were invited to celebrate their Hispanic heritage through a zine-making workshop this week hosted by the Texas A&M University Libraries.

Organizer Marisol Moreno ’10, a research guide at the Texas A&M Libraries, said the event offered a way to help students tell their stories through the creative process of making zines. The event was titled “Compartiendo Cuentos de Esperanza,” which translates to “Sharing Tales of Hope.”

“One of the things that I want to convey is that there’s no one story,” Moreno said. “We all have different experiences. I hope it offered an opportunity to expand their minds about the many different cultures that we celebrate and live, not only this month on Hispanic Heritage Month, but just every day.”
