Viola Canales, author of our featured book for the month of November, has graciously sent us a signed copy of her novel, The Tequila Worm, for our book giveaway this month! The hard cover edition includes a dedication in the front cover:
“For the reader participating in the Vamos a Leer November 2014 program-the month of The Tequila Worm-I dedicate this book to you with my affection AND the hope that you (like Sofía in the book) seek your dreams, with books as your friends and guides. Con cariño, Viola Canales.”
Canales has been particularly supportive of our blog and, when asked to provide us with a quote concerning multicultural literature, she proposed:
“Reading books reflecting our many cultures is like seeing a rainbow ignited by its many beautiful colors.”
We thank Canales for being a dedicated part of our Vamos a Leer community, and encourage all our readers to check out her work!
