Bilingual Storytime: The Night the Moon Fell

Sunday, April 18, 2021

Bilingual Storytime audience favorite readers Siah Correa Hemphill and Raul Turrieta finally join forces for a “read off” of Pat Mora’s The Night the Moon Fell. This traditional Mayan myth in which the moon is a young weaver and the Milky Way is a fish, has been transformed by author Pat Mora to show a spunky moon who finds a way to save herself. After her grandfather’s blowgun causes Luna to tumble into the dark ocean she makes the archetypical journey from homeland to a strange new world and back again. There will be costumes, dramatics, and a whole lot of literary love shared as the audience is invited to take a poll on which of our competitive readers did a better job. Winner gets bragging rights.
