Spring 2018 authors Julia Mancini, Iesha Baldwin, and Hannah Levine, presented their books to a group of students in Temporal, Cochabamba, where Kids' Book Bolivia coordinated literacy workshops throughout the semester.
Each student presented a live performance with the support of Títeres Elwaky, that captured the essence of their story.
Julia Mancini's book is a creative and symbolic story about the complex and delicate experience of children living in at risk situations, including have imprisoned parents, or having been victims of sexual abuse.
Hannah Levine's book offers insight into diverse experiences of adoptive families in Cochabamba, while exploring the definition and composition of family.
Iesha Baldwin's book is a learning opportunity to ask ourselves about our food sources, through the encounter of two distinct cultures, providing a glimpse into life in the primarily Afro-Bolivian rural village of Tocaña.
These books are in the final editing process and will be published in the Fall, 2018.
