Our First Book Launch

On Saturday, August 3rd, 2019, at 4pm, we launched the first book of the “Catalina & Sofía” series, titled “Catalina & Sofía in Cusco’s underground world”. Our book launch took place at Lima’s International Book Fair (FIL), and – aside from the general public – our special guests were 25 children who study at NGO Kantaya’s after school for children in extreme poverty, in the district of Ventanilla. They came all together in a bus and toured Miraflores, learned what a book fair is, and joined us in the event.

Lu Arispe, actress, teacher and clown, narrated the story and was in charge of the presentation

At the end of the presentation, we all wrote our biggest dreams in colored papers, made paper planes, and hanged them in our “tree of dreams”. 

We shared some of the dreams that the children and the adults shared with us:
