Author and illustrator Juana Medina has written many beloved picture books as well as two early chapter books featuring a young Colombian child, Juana, and her furry amigo Lucas. We are pleased to welcome Juana Medina as a headlining presenter at this year’s BBF and as a special guest at the Rafael Hernández two-way bilingual school as part of our Shelf Help partnership. In this session, Medina will introduce attendees to her characters and read a chapter from her latest book.
Donations received in conjunction with this session will support the library collection at the Rafael Hernández School. To donate, text BOOK to 617-300-0877 or visit bostonbookfest.org/donate and put "MEDINA" or "Shelf Help" in the "notes" field. Thanks for supporting our partnerships with Boston schools!
