ArtesMiami, through a program sponsored by the City of Miami (Mayor Francis Suárez and Commissioners), presented a cultural event for children that took place on January 14 at the Mater Center, in coordination with the Cuatrogatos Foundation.
That day, the writer Antonio Orlando Rodríguez, winner of the Alfaguara Novel Prize and author of numerous works of children's literature published in different countries, visited the main headquarters of Centro Mater to talk with children of the institution and read them some of the stories and poems.
As a complement to this activity, Rodríguez recorded a video that will be seen by all the children from the other headquarters of the Mater Center. In addition, ArtesMiami made a donation to the Mater Center and the Cuatrogatos Foundation, which gave the Center a collection of children's books in Spanish.
Centro Mater was founded in 1968 by Sister Margarita Miranda Otero - a religious member of the Sacred Heart in Cuba - to help with childcare services for the new families of Cuban exiles arriving in Miami. Currently, Centro Mater has several branches, has expanded its scope and provides its services annually to more than 1,200 children from low-income families of any nationality, religion or race.

The Chilean-American poet-artist Gustavo Novoa and ArtesMiami President Dr. Aida Levitan will read poems in English and Spanish from Novoa's Jungle Fables/Poemas de la Jungla, a bilingual poetry book published by Editorial Ultramar, the publishing division of ArtesMiami. 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.
