Is There Such a Thing as Too Many Tamales?

Tamales kneading

Tamale making is a family tradition and community ritual among Mexican and Mexican-American people, especially during the Christmas holidays. It can help develop a sense of unity and community, and breaks down borders between people and cultures.

Join us for a Community Tamalada on Sat. Dec. 14, 2019 from 10:30am to 12n.

Too Many Tamales cover
Children can enjoy a FREE bilingual reading at the Adams Public Library of Gary Soto’s famous and beloved Mexican-American Christmas story, Too Many Tamales. We will have a limited number of copies of the book for sale ($8).

Afterwards, come over to
La Galería @RILA to learn how tamales are made and taste a sample. Enjoy some champurrado, a traditional Mexican drink made of maize (corn meal) and Mexican chocolate.

Everyone can participate in the
tamalada. Parent supervision is required for young children. For a donation of your choice, you can take some tamales home.

The Adams Public Library is located at 205 Central St., Central Falls, RI 02863, directly next to La Galería @RILA. Ample parking at the library.
