Visitors to Texas find out quickly its people are downright friendly! The smiles and pleasant greetings of Texans show their hearts are as big as Texas itself. That’s how it is in McAllen, Texas. Author Chris Holaves immediately felt this warm welcome, especially from McAllen Memorial Library’s Kate Horan, Assistant Director for Public Services, Cesar Garza, Reference Librarian, and Sandra Rosales, Children’s Librarian. Michelle Shelton, Children’s Director, coordinated the details with Astakos Publishing to make the author’s appearance possible.
 
McAllen Memorial Library invited Holaves to read and talk about his bilingual children’s books, Even the Dead Get Up for Milk / Hasta los muertos se levantan por leche and  Running with the Bats / Corriendo con los murciélagos at its “Domingos Divertidos” on July 25, 2010. Children, parents and other adults attended the author’s performance where he read portions of his bilingual books in English and Spanish. He also shared colorful stories about where his writing ideas come from. The children’s bright questions and answers showed their knowledge and interest in bats. The author stressed the importance of reading and how reading can be fun and empowering: Los que leen son líderes. / Those who read are leaders. The performance concluded with children and parents making origami bats.
 
Chris Holaves’s appearance at McAllen Public Library’s “Domingos Divertidos” was made possible by the City of McAllen and the McAllen Memorial Library.
