In this production for young audiences based on the classic children’s book Tomás and the Library Lady, we follow Tomas and his family as they conquer the many challenges facing Mexican-American migrant farm workers in the 1940s and 50s.
As part of the 28th Annual Tomás Rivera Tribute, this performance will bring to life both the magic and the struggle of Dr. Rivera’s childhood, how he overcame those challenges, and went on to become an accomplished scholar, author, and Chancellor of the University of California, Riverside.
Event is free and open to the public.
Seating is limited, and on a first come, first served basis.
Parking in downtown Riverside is free after 5 PM.
This event is made possible with the support of the Gluck Fellows Program of the Arts, and the UC Riverside College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences.
