Due to health concerns this event has been CANCELLED. Sorry for the inconvenience. We will look to reschedule soon.


Meet four Latinx authors using their stories to claim joy and power for their communities. These members of Las Musas Latinx Author Collective will discuss the process of bringing their life journey and cultural experiences into their books. They will also open up about crafting stories that are as quirky, complex and colorful as they are.

Las Musas is the first collective of women and non binary (identifying on the female spectrum) Latinx MG and YA authors to come together in an effort to support and amplify each other’s debut or sophomore novels in US children’s literature. You can learn more about them and their mission here.


We'll be hosting:

Laura Taylor Namey is a Cuban-American and the author of the young adult novel The Library of Lost Things, about a literary genius who uses books to escape the crushing reality of her mother's hoarding. 

Mayra Cuevas is Puerto Rican and the author of the young adult romcom Salty, Bitter, Sweet, about a tricultural girl trying to win a culinary apprenticeship in Lyon, France while learning for about loss and love for the first time.

Adriana Cuevas is Cuban-American and the author of the middle grade novel The Total Eclipse of Nestor Lopez, about a boy with a secret ability to speak to animals who must use his gift to save his town.  

Anna Meriano is the Mexican-American (Tejana) author of the Love Sugar Magic series, about the youngest sister in a family of baking brujas whose tasty spells cause problems in their small Texas town.
