Emma Otheguy, Author

¡Bienvenidos! I am a children’s author who writes about Latinex identity and Latin American history and literature. Look for my middle-grade novel, Silver Meadows Summer, coming soon from Knopf Books for Young Readers.


Martí's Song for Freedom

Written in verse, with excerpts from Martí’s seminal Versos sencillos, this book is a beautiful tribute to a brilliant political writer and courageous fighter of freedom for all men and women.
