About the Author:

Silvia López (she/her) was born in Cuba and moved to Miami as a child. Her lifelong love of books turned into a career as a children’s librarian until, later in life, she became a children’s author. López is an eclectic writer whose work reflects her interest in animals, history, folk tales, and people who have overcome obstacles to achieve great things. Her books include Just Right Family: An Adoption Story (Florida Book Award 2018, illustrated by Ziyue Chen), Handimals: Animals in Art and Nature (a collaboration with Italian artist Guido Daniele), Queen of Tejano Music: Selena, which also received the Florida Book Award in 2020 (English and Spanish, illustrated by Paola Escobar), Pacho Nacho (bilingual, illustrated by Pablo Pino), and My Little Golden Book about Frida Kahlo (English and Spanish, illustrated by Elisa Chavarri). My Little Golden Book about Sonia Sotomayor in English and Spanish is scheduled for release in 2022.
