Travis Jonker of The Yarn podcast, in partnership with Penguin Young Readers, would love the keep the tradition going with a Pop Top Stage live recording featuring four of the 2018 Pura Belpré Authors/Illustrators: Ruth Behar (Lucky Broken Girl), Juana Martinez-Neal (La Princesa and the Pea), Pablo Cartaya (The Epic Fail of Arturo Zamora), and Celia C. Pérez (The First Rule of Punk). With books spanning from historical fiction to contemporary stories of music, family, and friendship, Travis and the authors will discuss the meaning of the Pura Belpré and their books.
