The Pura Belpre Project/ El Proyecto Pura Belpré
10:00 to 11:00

Pura Belpré (1901-1982) was a talented author, collector of folktales, puppeteer and storyteller who wrote and reinterpreted Puerto Rican folktales. As the first Puerto Rican librarian in the New York Public Library system, she  pioneered many programs for the Latino community. Our show is a re-enactment of her legendary “Bilingual Story Hour.” Her famous tales: Pérez & Martina, Juan Bobo, and The Three Magi come to life in a creative and interactive experience that combines storytelling with puppets!
