Lucía the Luchadora

We're thrilled to welcome Cynthia Leonor Garza, author of Lucía the Luchadora. Both girls and boys will embrace Garza's wonderful book, featured by Kirkus Reviews: "The text bursts with infectious energy and Lucía’s endearing personality. A madcap pace keeps the story moving along with humor, heart, and bravado in equal measures. Likewise, Bermudez’s colorful, buoyant illustrations radiate pure joy." When Lucía is confronted with a schoolyard bully and the assertion that "girls can't be superheroes," her beloved abuela reveals the secret that Lucía comes from a family of luchadoras, the bold and valiant women of the Mexican lucha libre tradition. Garza will read, sign books, and help kids create luchadora masks. Hosted by Yvonne Brooks. All ages welcome. Free.
