A headshot of Yuyi Morales and the cover of her book Lucero.

Join us for a program with author and illustrator Yuyi Morales! Their book Lucero was listed on NYPL’s Best Books for Kids 2021 and was in the top 10 on Los Mejores Libros para Pequeños 2021. You can check out this book and Yuyi's other stories at the Library. In this bilingual Spanish & English author talk we’ll read the book together, sing a song, and have a Q&A. At the end, Yuyi will lead participants in a crafts activity where they build a hummingbird that they can wear like a bracelet. This hummingbird will be inspired by the one that accompanies the fawn in Bright Star/Lucero. In some ancient Mexican beliefs, the hummingbird is the messenger of good news.
