Be Bold, Be Brave: 11 Latinas who made U.S. History!
On December 14, 2019 we had the wonderful opportunity to host the official book launch party for Be Bold, Be Brave: 11 Latinas who made U.S. History! by Naibe Reynoso.
The event consisted of photo ops, story time, coloring, a meet and greet and sweets provided by two local Latina-owned businesses. The little ones loved the activities, especially coloring pages of the characters in the book and story time with Naibe. Our future history makers had plenty of questions to ask Naibe during our Q&A.
Donas brought some "Selena" donuts to our book launch party! Their donuts were not only delicious, but looked amazing as well. Lil'M Baked Goods made character cookies of the characters in the book, which were beautifully done. Violet Summer Photography was the perfect photographer for this event, she's amazing with children. Ink Head Prints provided the inspiring decals for our walls. One Social Design put together the gorgeous set up. Last, but not least, The Balloon Co. who provided us with the most amazing balloon installation.
