  • Pura Belpré Returns to Her Island

    Centro’s latest publication, The Stories I Read to the Children, about the life and work of folklorist and librarian Pura Belpré, successfully completed its debut in Puerto Rico. Author Dr. Lisa Sánchez González traveled to the island to present her book in various locales, from the 19th century building of Biblioteca Nacional in Puerta de Tierra to the newest local bookstore in Santurce, the Main Library at the University of Puerto Rico and Universidad del Este.

    Sánchez González edited and selected Belpré’s stories for inclusion and wrote the biographical introduction to this volume.

    Lisa Sánchez González
    The Stories I Read to the Children...


    Lisa Sánchez González has always considered librarians her heroes, so it is not surprising she was drawn to Pura Belpré, (1899-1982), the first Puerto Rican and Latina librarian at the New York Public Library (NYPL), as the subject for a book. She will discuss this new book, The Stories I Read to the Children: The Life and Writing of Pura Belpré.
