Join us for Tomás and the Library Lady
Enjoy a live performance of Tomás and the Library Lady with your kids! Tomás, the son of migrant farm workers, meets a librarian who introduces him to the wonderful world of books. The stories enrich the lives of Tomás’ family and instill a love of reading.
This is the inspiring true story of Tomás Rivera, who grew up in a migrant worker family, befriended a librarian in Iowa, and learned to love books and the places they took him. Tomás went on to a successful career in academia and became the chancellor of the University of California, Riverside. Adapted from the well-loved book by Pat Mora Illustrated by Raul Colón, this play can be readily understood by both English and Spanish speakers. This is a show for all ages, and especially the elementary and middle school kids.
