Miguel & Michelle to be Released at Explora!

We launch new books all the time, but having a launch party at the Explora Science Center and Children's Museum is HUUGGGEEE for us! Stop by on Saturday and experience some fun stuff, including the release of Loretta Hall's newest book "Miguel & Michelle Visit Spaceport America" a great children's book focussed on our own great State!

Hall books-squashed

Bring the kids to Explora in Albuquerque on Sunday, April 2! Loretta Hall is releasing her new children’s book –
Miguel & Michelle Visit Spaceport America. Loretta is also bringing her daughter Jennifer who illustrated the book. It is her first!

The Explora store has signed books including Loretta’s three other space books for adults and older kids. Loretta will talk and sign books and if you are lucky she has space goodies to give kids. She is speaking in the Community Room at 2:30pm with questions and signing after.

Note: there is an admission fee to get into Explora and always free for Explora members. But there is so much for the kids (and adults) to see and do!

Protect Social Security
Strengthen labor laws so workers can easily join a union
Provide asylum for refugees
Extend minimum wage
Improve unemployment benefit system so it covers more people
Provide Federal assistance to low-income communities
Assure equal pay for equal work regardless of sex

I guess they have forgotten their roots. What the h*** happened?
