The Magik Theatre presents Tomás and the Library Lady
The Magik Theatre presents Tomás and the Library Lady. Adapted from the book by Pat Mora, this production explores the true life story of Chicano author and educator Tomás Rivera. Tomás was the son of migrant workers who loved learning, but had to leave school to follow the crops with his parents. When he met a library lady, a world of books opened up for him. Despite the conditions of migrant life, Rivera graduated from high school and went on to receive his master’s degree. He became the first Latino Chancellor of an American University in 1979.
