Virtual Launch of Isla to Island with Alexis Castellanos
An important and stunningly beautiful middle grade graphic novel!
ALEXIS CASTELLANOS' Isla to Island tells the story of 12 year old Marisol, a young girl from Cuba whose parents send her to stay in New York City following a rise in political violence in Havana. As Marisol struggles to hold on to her own identity in a country that feels nothing like a home, she slowly finds comfort and courage in books, botanical gardens, and remembering Havana through food and dance.
Almost entirely wordless, Isla to Island tells its powerful story through it's incredible use of colors and expressions. This is one not to miss!
And don't miss your chance to meet the incredible author and artist ALEXIS CASTELLANOS. ALEXIS CASTELLANOS will be in conversation with fellow author NINA MORENO — whose middle grade debut, Join The Club, Maggie Diaz, will be released in May!
