CANCELED Meet Yuyi Morales

March 13, 2020
$7 (Members $5)

Since immigrating to the USA from Mexico in 1994, Yuyi Morales has drawn from her family's legacy and her heritage to create some of the most celebrated Latino works for children's books. She is an author and illustrator of many notable and award-winning children's books, including Just a Minute: A Trickster Tale and Counting Book, Little Night, and Viva Frida, which received the 2015 Pura Belpré Medal for Illustration as well as the 2015 Caldecott Award Honor. Morales again received the Pura Belpré Medal for Illustration in 2019 for Dreamers, a topical and timeless picture book about making a home in a new place. Dreamers is a celebration of family, and what migrants bring with them when they leave their homes. And it’s a story to remind us that we are all dreamers, bringing our own gifts wherever we roam.
