“Join us to hear a brief history of the Latin American cartonera movement, from cardboard collectors to artists and writers who create cartoneras. See beautiful samples from Mexico, and learn how of folks any age can publish cartoneras. Jesse Gainer is a former elementary teacher who now works as an associate professor of literacy education at Texas State. He is interested in how young children develop language, literacy, and critical thinking, and ways teachers can bridge school-based instruction to children’s at-home languages and cultures.
