Margarito’s Forest: Expressions of Community, Survival and Partnership

October 26, 2018 @ 6:30 pm

Art Exhibit Celebration
Friday, October 26th
7:30 Program

Attend this celebration of original collage art by Allison Havens that illustrated Margarito’s Forest, a children’s book written in K’iche’, Spanish, and English. The story emerges from a 30 year partnership between a Mayan community in Guatemala and the congregation at University Church who welcomed a family into Sanctuary in the 80’s. Come to learn the story of Margarito’s Forest, the effort to print more books for schools and organizations in Guatemala, and the fascinating history behind this project.

Suggested donation: $15 buys a book for a school in Guatemala
