Announcements – Tues., Oct. 11

October 11, 2022

Good morning! Today is Tuesday, October 11th. 

Octavio Paz was born in Mexico City, Mexico in 1914. He grew up under poor circumstances, but access to his grandfather’s library sparked his interest in literature at an early age. One of his best known works is El laberinto de la soledad (The Labyrinth of Solitude), a collection of essays in which he analyzes Mexican history and culture. Cited for his impassioned writing with wide horizons, characterized by sensuous intelligence and humanistic integrity, Paz was awarded Nobel Peace Prize for Literature on this day in 1990.
