“Teresa Mlawer was a Cuban immigrant who quickly made a huge difference in the Hispanic community; she was one of the most respected figures in Spanish publishing.
She and her husband, Bill founded Lectorum Publications in NYC, a pioneer in the Latin publishing world in the United States and where I met my beloved husband, Arde, in 1990. She translated more than 250 children’s books into Spanish, books such as Where the Wild Things Are, Good Night Moon, Harold and the Purple Crayon, Turning Pages by Sonia Sotomayor, Superheroes Are Everywhere by Kamala Harris, She Persisted Around the World: 13 Women Who Changed History, by Chelsea Clinton, among many other award-winning books. Her legacy will live forever.”

She wants to tell stories, and she wants to encourage other people to tell them. ‘I always knew from the time I was seven that I wanted to be a storyteller or an actor or a singer,’ she says. ‘Or a writer. I always wanted to be a writer. I think that’s why I’m in awe of writers because I’ve tried to sit down and do it. I have ideas for stories all the time. I could never figure out how things ended. I always have ideas about how things begin but I never know how they end.’”
