The author and Publisher Beti Rozencwajg (photo) will offer an hour and a half long afterschool workshop for kids based on her two children’s picture books, “Stolen Spirit” and “Without Words”.

The two books introduce a brief overview of Brazil’s early history while encouraging young people to think about their Brazilian heritage through their personal experiences as immigrants, or as the children of immigrants.

The workshop will present some general information about Brazil’s early history through a brief discussion, but it will also be interactive.

“Stolen Spirit”, which takes place in 1500, focuses on the arrival of the Portuguese in Brazil from an Indian boy’s point of view. The workshop will explain how Brazil got its name and why the Portuguese were interested in this land.

“Without Words” is about a Brazilian immigrant boy who uses his talent for drawing to adapt to life in the United States. The workshop will encourage kids to draw or to write about some personal experience they had with Brazil.

The event “Afternoon Seminar with Sem Fronteiras Press” will be on July 12th, 2018, between 4 p.m. and 5:30 p.m., at the Brazilian-American Chamber of Commerce, Inc.
