BibliObservatory is a podcast series that is part of the South Carolina State Library's LibraryVoicesSC podcast. In this episode, Caroline and Ivette talk with Berta Berriz. Berriz’s story is a journey that takes us to a time when she was a little girl in La Habana, Cuba, listening to her grandmother's stories, and how those stories helped her overcome later on the challenges she faced as an immigrant child in the USA. She recounts in BibliObservatory the legends, historic episodes, and poetry that have shaped her, empowered her, and inspired her. This episode is an important reminder about embracing our own cultural identity as a meaningful and dynamic process that is always evolving. BibliObservatory is available for download in English and Spanish at libraryvoices.podbean.com.
