For Spaniards — and for the world — nothing has expressed their country’s traditionally rigid gender roles more powerfully than the image of the male matador. So sacred was the bullfighter’s masculinity to Spanish identity that a 1908 law barred women from the sport. Ella Es el Matador reveals the surprising history of the women who made such a law necessary and offers fascinating profiles of two female matadors currently in the arena: the acclaimed Mari Paz Vega and neophyte Eva Florencia. These women are gender pioneers by necessity. But what emerges as their truest motivation is their sheer passion — for bullfighting and the pursuit of a dream.

Calling all crafters! Learn to knit or bring your own projects to work on. We’ll start with finger knitting basics and go from there. All students in grades 6-12 welcome. We’ll have supplies for you to work with during the program. Beginners who want to keep knitting at home may wish to bring size 8 needles and a skein of worsted weight yarn.

Join us in the small meeting room at the Humboldt Park Library, 1605 N. Troy.
