Mythical Adventure: Aztec Myths in Fiction with David Bowles

David Bowles discusses the many ways he makes pre-Columbian mythology accessible

As part of our month-long Gulf Coast Reads celebration, join us for this live and interactive program.

He has written several titles, most notably The Chupacabras of the Rio Grande (with Adam Gidwitz), The Smoking Mirror (Pura Belpré Honor Book), They Call Me Güero (Tomás Rivera Mexican American Children’s Book Award, Claudia Lewis Award for Excellence in Poetry, Pura Belpré Honor Book, Walter Dean Myers Honor Book) and the 13th Street chapter book series (coming July 2020 from HarperCollins).

I enjoyed the genealogy class yesterday. It gave me so much pleasure to see my grandmother's name, along with the names of her parents and siblings, on a census taken in 1920 when she was only 15 yrs old. My grandmother died in 1997 at the age of 91. I will continue to seek out more records of my grandmother's mother. I'm looking forward to next month's genealogy class, and to the "Crack the Case" class, AND to the "History of Jazz" event, all coming up in February 2020. It will be a fun month. Thanks for all of these new programs. Just what I was looking for. See you soon!
Kids are excited about visiting the library.
What a lovely libary that contributes so much to the community. The staff is always open to help and assist any way they can. They also have free scans!! i love this libary. thank you guys :)
