Hutchins Library is pleased to honor Hispanic Heritage Month 2023 with an exhibition from Berea College's Special Collections and Archives of Manuel Joglar Cacho's 14-stanza poem, "Por Los Caminos del Día." Joglar Cacho (1898 – 1994) was a celebrated Puerto Rican poet whose book of poems first appeared in 1925.. In 1969, his "Por Los Caminos del Día" ("Along the Paths of the Day") was published as a set of 16 detached prints illustrated by Puerto Rican linoleum print artist and journalist José Antonio Torres Martinó (1916 – 2011). This notable work of twentieth-century poetry and art (signed copy 93 of 250) is part of the Berea College Special Collections and Archives. 

The exhibit can be viewed in the main floor of Hutchins Library during regular hours. This exhibit is free and open to the public. The exhibit runs from September 15 to October 15 2023. The exhibit also includes a small selection of books by Puerto Rican authors and/ or about Puerto Rico. In addition, there are two monitors on the side showing a translation into English of the poem. The poem was translated into English by Angel Rivera.
