This November, I had the great opportunity to read my books to Salvadoran children at La Bibilioteca de los Sueños, The Library of Dreams in El Salvador. It is so wonderful to give ‘mi granito de arena’ to inspire children to read, imagine and dream.

Compassion. It's something our country needs more of. Lucky for us, there are people like poet and children's author Jorge Tetl Argueta who seem to have an abundance of it to go around.
This week Argueta filled his luggage with books and flew to his hometown of San Salvador, El Salvador, for the 7th Annual Manyula International Children's Poetry Festival. As one of the main founders, he helps organize the poets and authors who give presentations to the school children participating in the literacy-boosting activities taking place at the Biblioteca Nacional (National Library).
But this year's event is extra special because Argueta will be officially opening the Library of Dreams (La Biblioteca de los Sueños), a place where children can dream, strengthen their spirits, and learn about their culture in a multilingual environment.
