About the Event
Mi Libro, Mi Espejo (My Book, My Mirror) is a community literacy service project by Dr. AdaVilageliu-Díaz (Ph.D. in Literature) in collaboration with the LAMB PTO Diversity & Inclusion Committee. The primary goal of this project is to provide children cultural mirrors that affirm their identity and instill pride in their diverse cultures, languages, and traditions. This program promotes literacy skills in both Spanish and English while empowering children to see themselves and tell their own stories. The project is primarily focused on Latinx children’s books, but it includes and celebrates children from all backgrounds.
Zara González Hoang is an obsessive scribbler, daydreamer and doodler. She grew up in a house full of stories, so it was only a matter of time before she started telling her own. Her debut book, A New Kind of Wild, was published by Dial books in April 2020 and was a Spring IndieNext Pick. She is also the illustrator of Thread of Love (Beach Lane Books, 2018) and Mi Casa is My Home. (Candlewick Press, 2021) She lives outside of DC in a magical suburban forest with her Mad Man husband, human-shaped demons, curly coated corgi and a jungle of plants.
