Join us for a special STORYTIME in Spanish! We will think about how artists honor memory, and read aloud Juana Martinez-Neal’s Alma y como obtuvo su nombre, a story about a little girl with five ancestral names. Following the story, we’ll create our own works exploring our own favorite memories.

Ven a un Cuenta-cuentos especial en español!
