Tomás and the Library Lady: written by Pat Mora

Adapted to the stage by Jose Cruz Gonzalez

Presented as part of the annual Tomás Rivera Conference

Hosted by the CHASS Dean's Office


This musical for young audiences is based on the classic children's book by Pat Mora. It follows Tomás Rivera and his family's move to the midwest as migrant farmers; as they face the challenges that come with moving to the United States. This performance, as part of the annual Rivera Conference, brings to life the magic of learning to read, Rivera's childhood, and his accomplishments as a scholar, author, and Chancellor of UC Riverside.


Support has been provided by UCR College of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences (CHASS), the Gluck Fellows Program of the Arts, and the City of Riverside.
