Tomás and the Library Lady is a bilingual musical based on the beloved book about Mexican American author and educator Tomás Rivera. It tells the true story about a young son of migrant farm workers who spends the summer with his family following the crops north from Texas to Iowa, spending long days in the fields listening to his grandfather tell stories. When a chance encounter brings him to the local Carnegie Library, he meets the “Library Lady” who recognizes his thirst for knowledge and encourages him to read. This inspirational production shows how reading, education, and self-esteem can make anything possible.
