SILVER CITY – Throughout November the Silver City Museum combines literature, culture, art and entertainment to present a series of bilingual virtual readings — perfect to capture the imaginations of all ages with important lessons on diverse cultures and traditions — as well as a virtual art exhibition.

Events kick off at 7 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 1 with a bilingual reading of “The Spirit of Tio Fernando/El espiritu de tio Fernando” by Janice Levy. The story will be read in English and Spanish by local artist, youth leader, and shop owner Diana Ingalls-Leyba, and spiritual medium and Día de los Muertos expert Nena Benavidez.
