Overview

Sigue el relato de la vida y el legado de Pura Belpré, la primera bibliotecaria puertorriqueña en la ciudad de Nueva York.

Cuando llegó a Estados Unidos, en 1921, Pura traía los cuentos folclóricos de su querido Puerto Rico. Al encontrar un nuevo hogar en la Biblioteca Pública de Nueva York como asistente bilingüe, convirtió sus historias populares en libros y esparció semillas de historias por todo el país. Hoy, esas semillas se han convertido en un frondoso bosque, a medida que generaciones de niños y cuentistas continúan difundiendo sus historias y celebrando el legado de Pura.

Este retrato de la influyente bibliotecaria, autora y titiritera nos recuerda del poder que hay en contar historias y nos presenta a la extraordinaria mujer que alcanzó a una cultura entera.
