Tomás and the Library Lady

Adapted by José Cruz González. From the book by Pat Mora

Tomás, the son of migrant farmworkers, 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. Adapted from the well-loved book, this play can be readily understood by both English and Spanish speakers.
