2020 started off with an exciting event

Libros para Todos started the year off with a bang. In January we hosted a lovely event for young children at the San Miguel Playhouse. The event featured a play, music and a presentation and book signing by author Alex Slucki.  Schools and after school programs had been given Slucki’s book, El Viaje de Arcoiris a la Tierra Olvidada, beforehand for the children to read. See the pictures below of the children acting out parts of the play based on the book.


In February, the Steinway Series organized two nights of concerts with visiting musician Dwight Blake at Bellas Artes. Thank you to producer Fred Dannen and to all those who attended! The Steinway Series donates a portion of their concerts to Libros para Todos.

Lastly, we have begun our second big read event of this school year. 11 schools and 400 children will be participating. The selected book is Max el Terrible by Jaime Alfonso Sandoval. Sandoval will be visiting San Miguel March 12-15. 

We thank you all for your continued support for the many projects of Libros para Todos.
