Hooked on Books with Karina González

  • January 11, 2024
  • 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Join LILRC for our Hooked on Books series as we welcome New York authors to our platform to share their stories.

Karina González will discuss her Pura Belpré Award honor book, The Coquies Still Sing: A Story of Home, Hope and Rebuilding. This book was inspired by the rebuilding of Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria in 2017. It tells the story of a young Puerto Rican girl named Elena who rallies her family and community after a hurricane destroys her home and the habitat of her favorite animal, the coquí.
