3 days of celebration!

La Casa Azul Bookstore (FINALLY)  
opens in El Barrio!  

Our celebration kicks off on Friday June 1st but we also have events on Saturday and Sunday - so you don't have an excuse for missing the festivities!

June 1, 6pm-8pm
Grand opening celebration!   
 La Casa Azul Bookstore will host its grand opening with a ribbon cutting, and the participation of authors, neighbors, campaign contributors and friends joining the celebration. The reception also includes a musical performance by the students of Mariachi Academy of New York and an art opening showcasing Artist Sol Aramendi photographs from the series "Tacto".

June 2, 12pm  
Sing along with ¡Acopladitos!
Musical storytelling with appealing music that parents would actually enjoy as much as their children!  

June 3, 3pm    
Reading with Nicholasa Mohr, author of "Nilda" 
Nicholasa Mohr's classic novel about life as an immigrant in New York City offers a poignant look at one young girl's experiences. Issues of race, religion and machismo are realistically and movingly depicted in this groundbreaking coming-of-age novel that was one of the first by a Latina author to be hailed by the mainstream media.
