Local Event!! Pat Mora reads The Beautiful Lady

We’ve highlighted a number of Pat Mora’s books on Vamos a Leer, so we’re very excited to find out that she will be in Albuquerque reading from her latest book, The Beautiful Lady: Our Lady of Guadalupe!!

The Beautiful LadyEvery December, Grandma Lupita tells Rose the story of Our Lady of Guadalupe. As they make paper flowers to put around her statue, Grandma begins: Long ago, on a cold December morning near what is now Mexico City, a man named Juan Diego put on his cloak and started down the road to church. On his way, Juan Diego sees a beautiful Lady at the top of a hill. She tells Juan Diego to go to the Bishop and ask him to build a special church for her. But the Bishop doesn’t believe that Juan Diego has seen the Lady; he asks for a sign. Again the Lady sends Juan Diego, and again the Bishop asks for a sign. Until finally, she provides one: her shining image on Juan Diego’s cloak for everyone to see.

Mora will be at one of our favorite bookstores, Bookworks, on Saturday January 26th at 10:30 am.  Come out and join us!! Listen to The Beautiful Lady, eat biscochitos and make paper flowers with Bookworks’ Contessa Connie!! Click here for more information.
