Join us for a virtual story time with author Jessica Gonzalez.
Jessica Gonzalez is a first-generation college student of Puerto Rican and Dominican descent. She attended CUNY Queens College and studied psychology. She worked with a local non-profit on her campus, the Center for Racial, Religious, and Ethnic Understanding, where she was given opportunities to understand racial politics in America, be a model for their annual social identity fashion show, and participate in a peer sex education internship. Being in an environment with people wanting to start conversations about important topics, helped spark the idea of Luna Yes! Luna, ¡Si!
Luna, Yes!/!Luna, Si! is a bilingual story about Cassie and Luna’s loving, and sometimes challenging, sibling relationship. Cassie’s narration and Luna’s responses highlight some behaviors that can be typical for people with high needs on the autism spectrum.
