Event

Junot Díaz at Anderson's Bookshop
Join Anderson's Bookshop for an event to celebrate the first children's book from bestselling author Junot Díaz, "Islandborn!"

From New York Times bestseller and Pulitzer Prize winner Junot Díaz comes a debut picture book about the magic of memory and the infinite power of the imagination.

Details:
This is a presentation and book signing event.  Each ticket includes a copy of the new book and admits one or two adults.  Children under 18 may attend at no cost, but do require a free ticket. Books purchased at other vendors are not permitted in the signing line.

Your ticket number/seat number is your reserved place in the signing line.  There are no assigned seats for this event.  After the presentation, you will line up in order of that number and then get to meet Junot and have your book signed.  This order is not based on when you arrive!  Please carefully note the event start time and plan to arrive before that time.  We cannot guarantee the length of time that any author will be with us.

Here's what you get with each ticket:
Admittance for one person
A copy of the new book handed to you when you arrive
A presentation or book talk
A reserved place in the signing line
Signatures in up to three older titles

Here's what you shouldn't expect:
A posed photo of you and Junot
A personalization (your name in the book)
An autograph in the book that you bought elsewhere

See you there!

PLEASE NOTE that this event follows the author's and publisher's wishes and may mean limits on photos and the number of signed or personalized books.  Anderson's Bookshop is not responsible for changes made by the author to the guidelines prior to or during the event.  Your understanding is appreciated.

More about the book:
Every kid in Lola's school was from somewhere else.
Hers was a school of faraway places.

So when Lola's teacher asks the students to draw a picture of where their families immigrated from, all the kids are excited. Except Lola. She can't remember The Island - she left when she was just a baby. But with the help of her family and friends, and their memories - joyous, fantastical, heartbreaking, and frightening - Lola's imagination takes her on an extraordinary journey back to The Island.  As she draws closer to the heart of her family's story, Lola comes to understand the truth of her abuela's words: Just because you don't remember a place doesn't mean it's not in you.

Gloriously illustrated by Leo Espinosa and lyrically written, Islandborn is a celebration of creativity, diversity, and our imaginations boundless ability to connect us to our families, to our past and to ourselves.
