Join us for the release of author Anna Meriano's middle grade LOVE, SUGAR, MAGIC!

Leonora Logroño's family owns the most beloved bakery in Rose HIll, Texas, spending their days conjuring delicious cookies and cakes for any occasion--and no occasion is ore important than the annual Dia de los Muertos festival. Leo hopes that this might be the year that she gets to help prepare for the big celebration...but, once again, she is told she's too young.

Sneaking out of school and to the bakery, she makes a startling discovery: her mother, aunt, and four older sisters have in fact been keeping a secret. They're brujas--witches of Mexican ancestry--who pour a little bit of sweet magic into everything they bake.

Leo knows that she has magical ability as well, and she's more determined than ever to join the family business--even if she can't let her mam and sisters know about it yet. And when her best friend, Caroline, has a problem that needs solving, Leo has the perfect opportunity to try out her craft. It's just one little spell, after all...What could possibly go wrong?


Anna Meriano grew up in Houston, Texas, with an older brother and a younger brother but (tragically) no sisters. She has taught creative writing and English, and works as a writing tutor. Anna likes reading, knitting, playing full-contact quidditch, and singing along to songs in English, Spanish, and ASL.
