As we boomers know, one of the true joys in life is sharing memorable stories with our middle-grade grandchildren… especially those books that are both thought provoking and a great read. And that’s where today’s guest comes in.

Aida Salazar is an award-winning author and arts activist whose writings for adults and children explore issues of identity and social justice. Her previous books for children, adults and middle-grade readers include The Moon Within, Land of the Cranes, A Seed in the Sun, In the Spirit of a Dream, and Jovita Wore Pants: The Story of a Mexican Freedom Fighter. These books have garnered both critical acclaim as well as a major fan base of young readers. One of her short stories, "By the Light of the Moon" was even adapted into a ballet production so Aida truly is a woman of the arts.

Now she’s joining us to share all about her latest book entitled Ultraviolet: Sometimes Life Explodes in Technicolor. It’s a great read that you’ll want to share with your grandchildren (especially your grandsons) so be sure to tune in!
