For nearly 20 years, Atlanta History Center has partnered with the Consul General of Mexico and the Institute of Mexican Culture to host Day of the Dead on our campus.
Virtual Dia de Los Muertos Celebration.
One of the most engaging parts of our annual Day of the Dead program is the sense of connection and community that can be felt walking around our campus during the festival. While the pandemic prevented us from gathering this year, we hope you'll join us in celebrating Mexican heritage and this sacred holiday by exploring the virtual offerings below.
Enjoy this curated list of books to continue your exploration of Day of the Dead.
