The urge to create some sort of offering to honor a deceased loved one isn’t a uniquely Mexican one. But Día de los Muertos is an annual mini-festival like no other, blending Aztec and other indigenous spirituality with Christian influences to remember and celebrate the lives that have passed through our own.

“What a Difference Words Make: Authors Who Have Touched Our Lives” is the theme of “Día de los Muertos 2017,” a curated exhibition of altars that pay tribute to influential writers, hosted, understandably, by Desert Broom Library, and displayed Tuesday through Saturday until Thursday, November 9.
