Tomás & the Library Lady

Some relationships are so special they have the power to change lives forever.  Tomás, the son of migrant workers, spends long, hot days in the fields harvesting crops.

A bilingual play based on the inspiring true story of the Mexican-american author and educator, Tomás Rivera.
