Tomás and the Library Lady

an Imagine U Production
Available On Demand MARCH 12-28
Recommended for ages 5-12.

Tomás and The Library Lady, directed by MFA Directing student Ismael Lara, Jr., tells the true story of a nine-year-old Tomás Rivera, the son of Mexican migrant workers who move from Texas to Iowa to work in corn fields in the summer of 1945. Tomás finds the library, where he bonds with the librarian. Adapted for the stage by José Cruz Gonzáles from the children’s book of the same title, written by El Paso born and UTEP graduate Pat Mora, Tomás takes his education into his own hands and develops a lifetime love of reading and writing.
