One Book, One San Diego In-Person Teen Author Event with Andrea Beatriz Arango

Friday, December 1, 2023 from 4 PM to 5:30 PM
Vista Branch Library
All Ages

Please join KPBS, the San Diego County Library, and our partners on Friday, December 1 at the Vista Public Library for a special live event with Andrea Beatriz Arango, author of our 2023 One Book, One San Diego teen selection, "Iveliz Explains It All."

Seventh grade is going to be Iveliz’s year. She’s going to make a new friend, help her abuela Mimi get settled after moving from Puerto Rico, and she is not going to get into any more trouble at school. . . .

Except is that what happens? Of course not. Because no matter how hard Iveliz tries, sometimes people say things that just make her so mad. And worse, Mimi keeps saying Iveliz’s medicine is unnecessary—even though it helps Iveliz feel less sad. But how do you explain your feelings to others when you’re not even sure what’s going on yourself.

Powerful and compassionate, Andrea Beatriz Arango’s debut navigates mental health, finding your voice, and discovering that those who really love you will stay by your side no matter what.

One Book, One San Diego is a partnership, led by KPBS, with the San Diego Public Library, the San Diego County Library, San Diego State University, One Book Sin Fronteras and more than 30 other community organizations. For more information about One Book, One San Diego, please visit:
