Spring Lecture Series: Barefoot Dreams

May 26 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

Join us for the third session of the Spring Lecture Series. “Barefoot Dreams of Petra Luna” tells the tale of Mexican migration to Colorado following the Mexican Revolution. Find out about the history of the immigrant families in our community.

Alda P. Dobbs is the author of the upcoming novel Barefoot Dreams of Petra Luna. She was born in a small town in Coahuila, Mexico but moved to San Antonio, Texas as a child. Alda studied physics and worked as an engineer before pursuing her love of storytelling. She’s as passionate about connecting children to their past, their communities, different cultures and nature as she is about writing. Alda lives with her husband and two children outside Houston, Texas.
