Sponsored by The Friends of the Marina Library. Join us as we celebrate Día de los Muertos! One month isn’t enough time to explore the wide range of stories that exist but we intend to try.
At the beginning of the The Friends of the Marina Library's Little Kids Block Party (starts at 10am and ends at 11:30am) local dad, Joe Macias from Families of Color Monterey County and Dads of Monterey County will be reading a few specially selected children's books celebrating Día de los Muertos featuring protagonists of color.
Joseph Macias was born and raised in Monterey County. He currently lives in Salinas with his wife, Shardonnay and their two young children, Nora Jo (almost 3) and Micah Joseph (9-months-old). Joseph is a Licensing Program Analyst for California Department Social Services. He enjoys traveling with his family and most genres of music. Día de los Muertos is a way he stays connected to the cultura and folklore! Autumn is his favorite time of year -- enjoying family and festivities.
