Gabby Rivera, author of JULIET TAKES A BREATH (Dial Books for Young Readers), is participating in the virtual Everywhere Book Fest, appearing on the Write #HerStory panel, as bestselling authors explore how their stories speak to the bigger picture of feminism and what it means to champion this narrative for young adults, via Everywhere Book Fest online, Friday, May 1, at 2:00pm (ET). 

In JULIET TAKES A BREATH, with a summer bursting with queer brown dance parties, a sexy fling with a motorcycling librarian, and intense explorations of race and identity, Juliet learns what it means to come out–to the world, to her family, to herself.

Gabby Rivera is a Bronx-born queer Puerto Rican on a mission to create the wildest, most fun stories ever. She’s the first Latina to write for Marvel comics, penning the solo series AMERICA about America Chavez, a portal-punching queer Latina powerhouse. In 2017, Gabby was named one of the top comic creators by the SyFy network, and one of NBC’s #Pride30 Innovators. Gabby now makes magic on both coasts, currently residing in California. She writes for all the sweet baby queers and her mom, and hosts Joy Revolution, the podcast that brings together her favorite revolutionary humans to honor joy in a chaotic world.
