Selena Birthday Week Celebration

Some people like cheese paired with grapes. Some people like one of the oldest houses in Austin paired with one of the most iconic music biopics of all time. Five years before “Jenny on the Block” dropped, Jennifer Lopez starred as Selena Quintanilla-Pérez, the Queen of Tejano music. To celebrate Selena’s April birthday, the 1997 film will be screened Friday at the French Legation. To dig deeper, head to Sid Richardson Hall earlier in the afternoon (1-4pm) to view archival material including photographs, magazines, and ephemera from Selena’s life. – Maggie Q. Thompson
