Boertzel, Brooke The Storyteller's Candle Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling,
Performing Arts- Puppetry
In 1929, a warm and dynamic woman named Pura Belpré became the first Latina librarian in New York City. At a time when non-English speakers didn’t always feel welcome in the library, Pura helped many immigrants to feel at home there, and inspired a love of reading in generations of young people. In The Storyteller’s Candle, a skilled bilingual storyteller plays Pura, greeting audiences in their own school or public library, and showing them the wonders that can take place there. Through a blend of storytelling, music and puppetry, young audiences will learn about Puerto Rican folklore and the library’s important role in the community. Kids sing along and become puppeteers as Pura’s stories unfold. Based on the bilingual book, The Storyteller’s Candle By Lucia González with illustrations by Lulu Delacre.
