Islanders Liz Hotchkiss and Solomon and Lisa Vergara-Cobos will talk about their December trip to Santiago Tuxtla in the state of Vera Cruz, Mexico, at the Friends of the Library annual meeting tonight in the Ocracoke Community Library, Back Road.

The meeting begins at 7 p.m. and is open to the public.

Hotchkiss, whose late husband Chuck was a mentor to Solomon, said the family invited her to visit their home town during the Christmas holidays.

“It’s not a tourist area,” Hotchkiss said about this region, and will show about 20 photos of the trip.

While there, she experienced the holiday traditions and ceremonies, and had indigenous foods, some of which will be available–including a special drink–for attendees to sample tonight.
