Human Rights Festival - Mika and Lolo Book Reading
Join author Virginia Méndez for a reading of her new children's book Mika and Lolo about two cousins that question why sometimes they are treated differently just for being a boy or a girl.
The reading will be followed by an open discussion for children about the book, gender stereotypes and the importance of remaining faithful to who they are.
