Little Book Festival
Pico Union Housing Corp. houses the Central Cultural Oaxaca (CCO) non-profit organization. Every year CCO puts on a small cultural book fair where they invite many Mexican authors and publishers to give motivational speeches and workshops. Children are read and then given a book to take home. This year we had many Folkloric groups perform to showcase the different regions of Mexico. Tacos, Tlayudas, Horchata, and homemade ice cream were sold, bringing us a little closer to Mexico. Famous Mexican Actor Fernando Allende and his son Adan Allende flew in to make a special appearance and read to the children.
