Rita Moreno es considerada un tesoro norteamericano y un adorado ídolo puertorriqueño. Es una de las seis mujeres galardonadas con el conjunto de premios conocido como EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Óscar, Tony), y particularmente admirada por su papel de Anita en West Side Story, entre muchas otras actuaciones célebres a lo largo de sus 70 años de carrera.

Pero ¿quién era Rita antes de todo eso? 

Conoce su historia gracias a Anika Aldamuy Denise y este sincero homenaje a una de las primeras y más influyentes artistas latinas de teatro y cine.

Con expresivas ilustraciones de Leo Espinosa, ilustrador best seller del New York Times, esta fascinante biografía ilustrada te llevará a conocer la vida de una mujer que, a pesar de sus humildes orígenes y los prejuicios de Hollywood, cantó, bailó y actuó, alcanzando con ello la cumbre del éxito.
