Verónica is a pre-adolescent who, faced with traditional tales, questions the roles of different "princesses" as she learns to put herself in the shoes of others and especially those of her mother. Workshops will focus on celebrating family through personal interviews with inspiring role models and students will create their own modern-day fairy tale. Community events will celebrate International Women's Day on March 8th, 2024.
