A GIRL NAMED ROSITA
You may know Anika from her previous books:
- MONSTER TRUCKS (with Nate Wragg)
- BUNNY IN THE MIDDLE (with Christopher Denise)
- THE LOVE LETTER (with Lucy Ruth Cummins)
- PLANTING STORIES: THE LIFE OF LIBRARIAN AND STORYTELLER PURA BELPRE (with Paolo Escabar) (Pura Belpre honor winner)
I asked Anika to share some insight into how books are made: from finding an agent to pairing with an illustrator, to marketing a book when it comes out. Anika’s next book is A GIRL NAMED ROSITA: THE STORY OF RITA MORENO, ACTOR, SINGER, DANCER, TRAILBLAZER! (with Leo Espinoza).
*Releases on November 3, 2020.
