 About the play

Based on the true story of Mexican-American author and educator Tomás Rivera by Pat Mora. Tomás is the son of Spanish-speaking, migrant farmworkers, Florencio and Josefa Rivera. He loves learning, but often misses school to follow the crops with his parents. When Tomás meets a library lady, a whole new world opens up for him. This inspirational story suggests what libraries – and education – can make possible.
