This week is filled with fun for me.
I will run a 10K.
Join friends for a river clean up....
and take the kids to the first Spanish Book Fair in LA.
LéaLA will take part this weekend April 29, 30 and May 1st.
A chance to get my little ones closer to the Spanish language, through books...
It will be a gathering of highly acclaimed authors, including Isabel Allende, whom I adore, I think I can call her my abuela's favorite author, and if abuela was visiting from El Salvador right now, I know we would stand in line (like right now) to make sure she got a chance to meet her!
(I will try my hardest to get a book autographed for her).
There will be books to buy. Celebrities participating in activities, including reading stories to kids in the kids' zone. Seminars and workshops for kids and adults about popular trends, current events and Latino culture will be part of the daily programs.
Admission is free. Event hours are: 10am to 7pm at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
You can visit the LéaLA website at www.lea-la.com for programs and details.
Let me know if you will be there!
*I was not given monetary compensation for sharing but will be included in a random drawing to win a gift card for the event. (I really hope I win! Our library is in need of spanish children books!).
