Mid-Columbia Libraries (MCL) celebrates the culmination of National Hispanic Heritage Month with a special book giveaway at all 12 MCL branches starting Oct. 15. The community is invited to stop by their local library to pick up a book by Newbery Medal-winning children’s and young adult author Matt de la Peña, while supplies last. Books are available in both English and Spanish.
De la Peña is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of five picture books, including “Love” and the award-winning “Last Stop on Market Street,” and seven young adult novels. His most recent novel is “Superman: Dawnbreaker,” which explores the DC icon’s coming-of-age story in the Mexican-American community in Smallville.
Books are provided courtesy of Mid-Columbia Reads sponsor, Battelle. De la Peña’s books are also available for checkout at midcolumbialibraries.org/matt-de-la-pena.
MCL and Kennewick School District will host a bilingual presentation and student-led interview with the author Dec. 6 at Southridge High School. Learn more at midcolumbialibraries.org/event/author-visit-matt-de-la-pena.
