Tomás and the Library Lady
tells the true story of a son of a migrant farm worker during the 1940s. Feeling a little out of place since his family's move to Iowa from Texas and wanting to know more than just his grandfather's stories, Tomás stumbles into a library and is welcomed by the librarian. Through her patience and understanding, Tomás develops a love for books and knowledge that he always wanted to have, inspiring a life-long love of learning that culminated in his becoming a chancellor at a university.
This play is produced in collaboration with Modesto Junior College Theatre Department. This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
