Author-Illustrator Juana Martinez-Neal will read her books Fry Bread. 

Fry Bread

Told in lively and powerful verse by debut author Kevin Noble Maillard, Fry Bread is an evocative depiction of a modern Native American family, vibrantly illustrated by Caldecott Honor winner Juana Martinez-Neal.

Fry bread is food.

It is warm and delicious, piled high on a plate.

Fry bread is time.

It brings families together for meals and new memories.

Fry bread is nation.

It is shared by many, from coast to coast and beyond.

Fry bread is us.

It is a celebration of old and new, traditional and modern, similarity and difference.

Juana Martinez-Neal is the daughter and granddaughter of painters. Alma and How She Got Her Name and Alma y cómo obtuvo su nombre, were her first books as author-illustrator. The English edition was awarded a 2019 Caldecott Honor. She was born in Peru, and now lives in the Arizona with her family.
