“El Poder de La Lectura: Celebración Comunitaria de Cuentos en Español Para Ninos y Jóvenes” or “The Power of Reading: A Community Celebration of Stories in Spanish for Children and Youth,” will be held at the YMCA of Greater Springfield from 3:00-5:00pm.

Spanish speaking authors and local celebrities will share age appropriate stories with children, and the first 200 children who attend will receive a brand new book and a fleece blanket to curl up with and read at home. We are delighted to announce that New York Times bestselling author Rita Williams-Garcia will be joining us to share chapters from her Newbery Honor and Coretta Scott King award winning novel One Crazy Summer. Award winning author Lulu Delacre will also share stories from her series Rafi and Rosi.
