6:30 p.m., Eureka Library Family Literacy Night, Bilingual Storyteller Olga Loya

Wednesday, April 17, 2019

Latina storyteller, performance artist, writer and teacher, Olga Loya uses a dramatic mix of Spanish and English to share traditional tales from Latin America as well as stories from her own varied and colorful life growing up in East Los Angeles. Known nationally and described as an 'alchemist' who can conjure up images and fill them with life, her shows are bursting with color and passion. Loya uses her voice, body, and sometimes music and dance to draw her audience into the imaginative and surprising worlds of the tales she tells. Each child in attendance will receive a free book, new or gently used.

Olga Loya's expressive storytelling shows in her hands & the tilt of her head.
