Join Matt de la Peña and Christian Robinson, the award-winning, bestselling duo behind Last Stop on Market Street for a special event celebrating the release of their second collaboration, Carmela Full of Wishes. Set in a migrant community, Carmela is a “powerful and beautiful” (Kirkus, starred review) story about a young Dreamer who spends her birthday helping her brother with their family’s errands for the first time, and searching for the perfect wish. A moving ode to family, to dreamers, and to finding hope in the most unexpected places, “Carmela’s story shines” (Publishers Weekly, starred review).

Brooklyn Public Library is proud to co-present with Greenlight Bookstore and Make the Road New York to celebrate the release of Matt de la Peña and Christian Robinson’s second collaboration, Carmela Full of Wishes!

You can order the new book (or other great picture books) here to have it signed by Matt and Christian.
