Follow the life and legacy of Pura Belpré, New York City's first Puerto Rican librarian.

When she arrived in the United States in 1921, Pura brought with her the folk tales of her native land, Puerto Rico. She found her new home at the New York Public Library as a bilingual aide. She got her stories into books and spread the seeds of her stories across the country. Today, those seeds have been transformed into lush landscapes as new generations of children and storytellers have continued to tell her stories and celebrate Pura's legacy.

This magnificent portrait of the librarian, author, and puppeteer reminds us of the power of storytelling, and of the extraordinary woman who opened the doors and championed the idea of bilingual literature.
