“Tomás, the young son of migrant farm workers, spends the summer with his family following the crops north from Texas to Iowa, passing long days in the fields listening to his grandfather tell stories and practicing English translations. A chance encounter brings him to the local Carnegie Library where he meets a “library lady” who recognizes his thirst for knowledge and encourages him to read. Based on the true story of the Mexican-American author and educator Tomás Rivera, this inspirational story suggests what reading — and self-respect — can make possible. This production will be done in partnership with the University of Texas at Austin Department of Theatre and Dance.”
