This looks like a great model for a multilingual, multicultural bookfair and great for bilingual, multilingual, family, and international literacy. Is there anybody that will be in San Diego? Monica posted this announcement on the REFORMA listserv. If you don't know about REFORMA you can go to http://www.reforma.org/
If you happen to be in the San Diego area on October 18, please consider joining us for the SERRA Multilingual Book Fair. The book fair helps fund the Serra Multicultural Library Scholarship administered by LIBROS, the San Diego Chapter of Reforma. Hope to see you there!
