La Llorona: The Wailing Woman

La Llorona: The Wailing Woman In-Person / Online

*Attend in person or watch the livestream from home! 

This famous ghost from Spanish folklore is known throughout the world for her eerie, spine chilling cries. She wanders endlessly through the night, often near river banks, searching for her darling, lost children. Early Spanish settlers knew of La Llorona—her folk story was ancient in European mythology. But in New Mexico, it's said she lived next door or that an ancestor actually knew her.

Hispanic history and traditions are brought to life with the popular performance and songs of Rosalia de Aragon, a multi-talented actor and vocalist. Rosalia is from a family of accomplished visual and literary artists. She loves teaching New Mexico history to student audiences through stories and song.

This program fulfills a requirement of the Lotería at the Library game.

This program is made possible by the New Mexico Humanities Council and Friends of Los Alamos County Libraries.
