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.
