Last week the first review of MARTÍ’S SONG FOR FREEDOM was published, and it’s a starred review from Kirkus! The reviewer says, “In bringing an important life back into the conversation during divided political times, this book spotlights a steadfast hero and brilliant writer still worth admiring today.” You can read the full review here.
MARTÍ is also a staff pick over at Anansesem, the website of Caribbean children’s literature, alongside some of my favorite authors like Margarita Engle, Daniel José Older, Tracey Baptiste, and Nadia Hohn.
Best of all, the book is now available for pre-order from one of my all-time favorite independent bookstores, La Casa Azul.
July 17th can’t come soon enough!
