Anita de Lucio was born in the windy state of Hidalgo, Mexico. Growing up in Burbank, California, her grandmother bought her sugar skulls, set up small altars for her deceased relatives in her home and brought Día de los Muertos bread from Mexico before it was even available in the States. Anita grew up celebrating the early days of November when the souls of loved ones come to visit. Colorful and overflowing with offerings, the Día de los Muertos altar is a celebration of those who have passed on.
Come join Anita for a hands on workshop and help create the Día de los Muertos altar for Mission Branch.
Best for children 5 and older.
Come to the library, check out the show, get a library card, and enjoy some books!
