Mythical Adventure: Aztec Myths in Fiction with David Bowles

David Bowles discusses the many ways he makes pre-Columbian mythology accessible

As part of our month-long Gulf Coast Reads celebration, join us for this live and interactive program. David Bowles will discuss the many ways he makes pre-Columbian mythology accessible, through vibrant new retellings and speculative fiction that draws from Mesoamerican rather than European traditions. A Q & A will follow the live talk.
About the Author:
David Bowles is a Mexican-American author from Texas. He has written several titles, most notably The Chupacabras of the Rio Grande (with Adam Gidwitz), The Smoking Mirror (Pura Belpré Honor Book), They Call Me Güero (Tomás Rivera Mexican American Children’s Book Award, Claudia Lewis Award for Excellence in Poetry, Pura Belpré Honor Book, Walter Dean Myers Honor Book) and the 13th Street chapter book series (coming July 2020 from HarperCollins).
