Cuentos Para Dormir: Sophia Sobko with the organization DREAMERs Moms

San Diego State University
Education Business Admin Building
Room 410

Join us for a lecture and conversation by Sophia Sobko and Yolanda Varona about the project Cuentos Para Dormir

Cuentos Para Dormir is an original children’s book series written by deported parents living in Tijuana, Mexico for their children who are living in the USA. The books employ magical realism to chronicle personal stories of deportation and family separation, covering themes including domestic violence, friendship, resilience, and faith.

Lecture by Sophia Sobko, the artist and educator who helped the parents with the writing process and the publishing of the books. In addition, the parent-authors of the DREAMERs Moms organization will be broadcast in from Tijuana, Mexico to participate in a bi-national book reading and to discuss issues of deportation and family separation.

Organized by SDSU Downtown Gallery in conjunction with We Are Here/Estamos Aquí on display at the SDSU Downtown Gallery.

We Are Here/Estamos Aquí is organized by the SDSU Downtown Gallery. This event is sponsored by The President’s Leadership Fund, Univision Radio San Diego, the School of Art + Design, the College of Professional Studies and Fine Arts. Additional support is provided by Arts Alive SDSU.
