Award winning bilingual Spanish-English storyteller Joe Hayes, author of the classic Southwestern children’s story The Day it Snowed Tortillas retells Cuban folktales in English and Spanish in his newest children’s book Baila, Nana, Baila.
In Baila, Nana, Baila there’s a stingy old lady who owns the only fire in the world, yams that talk, a rose bush that sings, and an old devil man who leaves hairy footprints wherever he goes. His tales are full of warmth, laughter, magic and wisdom. Joe Hayes’ bilingual Spanish-English tellings have earned him a distinctive place among America ’s storytellers. In 2005, Joe received the Talking Leaves Literary Award from the National Storytelling Network. His books have received many awards including an Aesop Accolade Award. We’ll have all of Mr. Hayes’ books on-hand for sale at this special event. (booksense)
