Fundraiser to Benefit the Tam Tran Scholarship | Meet Yuyi Morales, author of 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 Belpre 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 for a once in a lifetime reading in Rhode Island. Dreamers tells a magical story of how Yuyi and her son 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.
This event is co-sponsored by the Tam Tran Scholarship Fund and Rhode Island Latino Arts.
