All right, dudes.  Here’s the deal.  Jennifer Brennan is offering a free ticket to this event to the first ten people who email her.  She wants you to attend.  How can you resist?  It’s a Sunday after all.  Besides, this book has a shot at a major award at the end of the year.  Maybe both the Newbery and the Caldecott?  There’s a chance.

The award-winning author of Esperanza Rising talks about her stunning new book, a fictional biography of Pablo Neruda’s younger years that combines elements of magical realism with poetry, history and literary fiction.   This inspirational book beautifully depicts how the awkward, shy, imaginative Chilean schoolboy Neftali Reyes, mesmerized by the natural world, became the world-renowned poet Pablo Neruda.  Ages 9 and up.

"Ryan writes movingly in clear, poetic language that children will sink into."- Booklist
