Placeholder Image
ARGYLE - Argyle Public Library's next "Life in Lafayette" will be at 7 p.m. March 15 at Central 52, 300 E. Milwaukee St.

The topic will be "Hispanics in Lafayette County," presented by Sgt. Tony Ruesga, Darlington Police Department and Lafayette County Board member.

The rapid increase in the Hispanic population of Wisconsin's rural areas are reshaping work, school and social life, but also are raising concerns that Spanish-speaking immigrants often are isolated and mistrusted. Ruesga has been fostering better relationships between newcomers and long-time residents for over a decade.

He will address questions regarding why Hispanics have chosen to live in Southwest Wisconsin, what impact Hispanics have on local communities, myths and misconceptions, how to get the Hispanic community involved and cultural differences between Hispanics and Caucasians.

The final spring session will be "Author Talk: Bonnie Nazdam" at 7 p.m. April 19 at Central 52. This local author of the acclaimed novel "Lamb" will read from her book and compare scenes from the major motion picture adaptation.

Pizza and drinks will be available for purchase at both events.
