Children’s book author Marsha Almodovar

Join us on Saturday, November 18, from 3-4 p.m. for a Storytime and Craft Event at LEAF Global, 19 Eagle Street in downtown Asheville.

Children’s book author Marsha Almodovar, who is also LEAF’s Easel Rider and ULEAF Community Events Coordinator, will be sharing her new book, Mucho Mucho. Copies will be on sale at the event for $23.

Mucho Mucho is a Spanish-language book (with English subtitles). Its principal character is an Afro-Latina child from Puerto Rico who talks about the things in the world she loves that all kids have access to regardless of where they come from or their economic background. It’s a big topic told in a very simple way. The book’s demographic is early-elementary children.

Regular entry free to LEAF Global is a suggested donation of $5.

The event is finished.

Mayani is a Maasai boy from longido Arusha. He went to boarding school at 6 years old and lost his Maasai language and tradition. Since joining the LEAF program, he has learned to sing Maasai songs, practiced the ‘jump’ tradition and wear Maasai shukas (traditional clothing). Mayani is extremely happy and is currently teaching other youth the culture.
