Ariana Stein and Patty Rodriguez are entrepreneurs, business partners, mothers and childhood friends. They’re also the driving force behind a bilingual children’s book series, Lil’ Libros, which encourages bilingualism and a passion for reading.
The duo will headline Cal State Fullerton’s 5:30-7:30 p.m., March 15 Women’s History Month reception at the Fullerton Marriott. Hosted by CSUF President Fram Virjee, the WoMen’s and Adult Reentry Center, and the Women and Gender Studies Department, the reception will celebrate women and their significant contributions to society.
Beyond their work at Lil’ Libros — which tells stories of important figures in Latin American history in both English and Spanish — Rodriguez is senior producer for iHeartMedia Inc.’s “On Air With Ryan Seacrest” and Stein is the founder of pet transportation company 1-800-Pet-Taxi.
