Tomás loves stories. As the young son of migrant farm workers, he spends the summer with his family following the crops north from Texas to Iowa. When a chance encounter brings him to the local library, he meets the “Library Lady” who recognizes his thirst for knowledge and encourages him to read. Tomás and the Library Lady is a bilingual musical, based on the beloved book about the true story of the Mexican-American author and educator Tomás Rivera, who became the first minority Chancellor in the University of California system. This inspirational production shows how reading and education -- and self esteem - can make anything possible.
