Vroman’s Special Storytime featuring Mirelle Ortega, in conversation with Danielle Davis, presenting River of Mariposas

Author Mirelle Ortega event details for August 13th at 11am

From the author of Magic: Once Upon a Faraway Land comes a story of imagination and the determination of a child to bring back the butterflies--even if she has to make them herself

Can you imagine a time when the land and the sky belonged to the mariposas? I can . . .

A young girl dreams of the land's historic mariposas amarillas and is determined to re-create their glory, even if her butterflies are made of paper. But when nature thwarts her plans, life, magic, and yes, even the rain, bring something more beautiful than she ever could have crafted. Based on the author's own memories of a hurricane that diverted the migration of thousands of butterflies through her hometown near Veracruz, Mexico, this beautiful story captures the essence of imagination and the beauty of the unexpected.
