New York City – Books are treasures for they magically create images in your head, especially when they are meant for kids or to nourish your soul through poems. The mother-daughter tandem of Sylvia Hubilla and Theda Fresques offers an enchanting and poignant reading treat.
Both residing in Austin, Texas, Sylvia in her 70s, describes life’s highs and lows in words with such economy and emotion in Snippets. It is a small book of random verses which is touching and honest. Sylvia’s grand daughters Ariana Fresques and Gianina Faelnar are the book’s illustrators.
