Show Description:

"Libros, libros, libros I love to read.
Libros, libros, libros that’s what I need."

Based on the true story of Mexican-American author and educator Tomás Rivera, this play, told in both Spanish and English, follows the son of migrant farm workers as he discovers a surprising world of possibility inside his local library thanks to a special librarian. This inspirational, theatrical biography proves that reading and respect can make anything possible.
