About the Story:
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 written by Pat Mora, this play can be readily understood by both English and Spanish speakers.

*Join us on February 18 (sold out) for our Accessibility Day! The performance will offer ASL interpretation, Audio Description, and be sensory-friendly. If you need any other accommodations, please contact the box office at least two weeks before the performance and we will do our best to facilitate your needs.
