Video of the Week: Life on the other side / La vida en el otro lado: Duncan Tonatiuh at TEDxSanMigueldeAllende

This week’s video features author and illustrator Duncan Tonatiuh’s TED talk in San Miguel de Allende. You’ll find out why he began writing children’s books and how his illustrations are

inspired by Ancient Mexican art, particularly that of the Mixtec codex. He also discusses why he has chosen the themes of migration and comparing/contrasting the lives of Mexican and American children for his children’s books. It’s a great listen and we encourage you to take the time to watch the video.
