Magik Theatre, in partnership with Chicago Children’s Theatre, is thrilled to be hosting the award-winning children’s author, Matt de la Peña, as he reads his book “LOVE” in both English and Spanish and leads us in a community discussion. We invite the San Antonio community to join us as we explore and celebrate how LOVE is at the center of our work when teaching young people about resilience and hope.
Matt de la Peña is the New York Times Bestselling, Newbery Medal-winning author of seven young adult novels (including Mexican White Boy, We Were Here, and Superman: Dawnbreaker) and six picture books; including Milo Imagines the World, Last Stop on Market Street, Carmela Full of Wishes, and LOVE.
LOVE is a story about the strongest bond there is and the diverse and powerful ways it connects us all. Illustrated by Loren Long, LOVE depicts the many ways we experience this universal bond, which carries us from the day we are born throughout the years of our childhood and beyond. With a lyrical text that’s soothing and inspiring, this tender tale is a needed comfort and a new classic that will resonate with readers of every age.
Please join us for this free event, open to all.
