Loughlin Poets & Writers Club Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month

As part of St. Joseph's College's (Brooklyn) Hispanic Heritage Month Lecture Series, the leaders of Loughlin's Poets & Writers Club, sophomores Jocelyn Atienza Serrano (President) and Tai Sheppard (Vice President), along with club moderator, Mr. Frank attended a Zoom Webinar featuring graphic novelist Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez. 

Mr. Miranda-Rodriguez is most notably recognized as the writer and creator of the critically acclaimed and bestselling superhero series La Borinqueña that is part of the permanent collection at the Smithsonian Museums. On Tuesday, September 22, 2020, Mr. Miranda-Rodriguez shared with the Loughlin and St. Joseph's College communities how the long, untaught history of Puerto Rico and a desire for social justice led to the creation of his iconic, female superhero.  

It was a deeply rich and inspiring afternoon for writers and readers alike!
