Fundraiser to benefit the Tam Tran Scholarship | Meet Yuyi Morales, author of children’s book called DREAMers

Born in the city of flowers, Xalapa, México, Yuyi Morales blossomed into an illustrator, storyteller, and renowned children’s book author that led her to receive many prestigious awards throughout her career. She is the five-time recipient of the Pura Belpré Medal (2003, 2006, 2008, 2013, 2015) for her illustrations, and the first Latina to win the Caldecott Award Honor (2015).
Dreamer of the world, Yuyi Morales introduces her new children’s book called DREAMers at a once in a lifetime reading in Rhode Island. Dreamers tells a magical story of how Yuyi and her son, who immigrated from México, eventually found refuge within the stories of books at a Public Library shortly after arriving to the United States.
Join us October 12, 2018 to welcome Yuyi Morales at La Galería del Pueblo, 209 Central St. Central Falls, RI 02863 from from 5-7:30pm and raise funds for the Tam Tran Scholarship, which will benefit both undocumented and DACA students in higher education. For information contact Yaruska Ordinola at yaruska@tamtranscholarship.org
Your $20 donation includes a copy of DREAMers • Food and drinks will be served.
This event is co-sponsored by the Tam Tran Scholarship Fund and La GaleRIa del Pueblo @ Rhode Island Latino Arts.
