The free event will be at 7 p.m. on November 29th, 2018, at Books and Books, 265 Aragon Avenue, Coral Gables, Florida.
Jungle Fables/Poemas de la Jungla is a charming poetry book illustrated by the celebrated paintings of endangered animals created by Novoa. According to Charles Wieland, "There is a quality to Novoa's fables reminiscent of ancient proverbs. As with Aesop and other fablers of antiquity, Novoa ridicules the fashionable world of snobbery, shams and the injustices man bestows on his fellow man." This book has many levels and can be enjoyed by both children and adults because of its simple but appealing poetry and beautiful illustrations.
