We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of the legendary New Mexican author Rudolfo Anaya. He has inspired us all with his iconic works in Chicano literature, and he will be missed.
"As a young boy and adult, I had a sense of belonging in the library. As I grew older, I wanted to write stories in which I and fellow New Mexicans could see themselves in the landscape of literature."
-- Rudolfo Anaya
