Enjoy this story inspired by the Chinese-African-Cuban girl who broke Cuba's traditional taboo against female drummers for Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. In 1932, at the age of ten, Millo Castro Zaldarriaga performed with her older sisters as Anacaona, Cuba's first "all-girl dance band." Drum Dream Girl by Margarita Engle, illustrated by Rafael López, who won the 2016 Pura Belpré Illustrator Award for this book! Read by Miss Denise at the Jungman Neighborhood Library.
