Christina Diaz Gonzalez!

Thank you so much to Christina Diaz Gonzalez for coming by today to sign copies of her books for our readers!

We had a blast chatting with Christina about all things bookish including her two new books coming out this fall!

Invisible, Christina's new graphic novel, is Breakfast Club for the middle grade set. Five students with nothing in common are forced together for community service, but when they meet someone who truly needs their help each one must decide to stand up and stand out or remain Invisible. Be Visible!

The Bluest Sky will not release until September 6th but Christina was kind enough to sign special book plates for us! In a return to the world of her award-winning novel, The Red Umbrella, a boy and his family must decide whether to remain in Cuba under a repressive government or risk everything for a chance at a new beginning! May Your Dreams Follow You!
