On Saturday, I had the chance to talk about one of my favorite reads of last year.
I read Caminar by Skila Brown in the fall, and I’m so glad I finally had the chance to talk about it on Weekend Reads.
I’m often asked who has permission to write Latino stories. My personal view: the person with the humility, depth, research skills, and writing chops to do it. In this case, that person was Skila Brown.
Here are some thoughts on violence, children’s literature, and the need to tell our histories.

Got a chance to listen to this NPR clip today. Great interview, Meg, and a beautiful reading of an excerpt from CAMINAR. Such a compelling book! I agree that Skila handled difficult material in an amazing and accessible way. So glad you had a chance to talk about it on “Weekend Reads”!
