Pura Belpré

Searching for info, came across this name: Pura Belpré.

Pura Belpré (died 1982), was the first Puerto Rican librarian in New York City. She was also a writer, collector of folktales, and puppeteer. There is some dispute as to the date of her birth which has been given as February 2, 1899, December 2, 1901 and February 2, 1903.
