This past Saturday, Hostos Community College hosted the 9th Annual Puerto Rican Artisans Fair & Exhibition along with the 3rd Annual Puerto Rican Authors Book Expo in celebration of the 28th Anniversary of Puerto Rican History Month organized by Comité Noviembre. The day also saw 5th Annual South Bronx Folk Festival which celebrates the spirit and cultures of the community.

Comité Noviembre hosts such events to preserve the culture of the island of Puerto Rico amongst its diaspora here on the mainland and each year the events get better and better.  Hundreds were in attendance to see and buy arts, crafts, and books from Puerto Ricans from the island and throughout the world who all come to The Bronx each year to sell their wares and expose the people to the rich culture of such a tiny island.
