She made a lot of sacrifices to become a famous musician and her hard work paid off as she became the first 15-year-old girl to win a Tejano music award and went on to break many records during her career. This Selena biography explores how she went from being a talented girl growing up in Texas to a fashion icon and a world-famous singer.

Zahra Omar Shansab and Bahram Rahman and thier books
November 18, 2022 4:00 PM

The library is proud to present young adult author Zahra Omar Shansab and children’s author Bahram Rahman as they discuss their books, stories, and experiences of immigration. Zahra’s Lightchaser tells the story of war, patriarchy, and the uncertainties of refugee life for a teenage Afghan girl who copes with her fears by reading her only book with its last pages missing, and imagining all the various endings.

In Bahram’s children's book, Sky Blue Bench, Afghan school girl Aria's first day back at school since her accident reminds us that while war impacts the most basic needs of children in Afghanistan, resilience, resolve, a sense of community, and gender equality can offer a path to a brighter future.
