About the Author

Alexandra Alessandri is a Colombian American poet, children's author, and professor at Broward College. Her work has appeared in The Acentos Review, Rio Grande Review, Atlanta Review, and YARN. Alexandra lives in Florida.

Addy Rivera Sonda has loved creating characters and worlds on paper ever since she was a little girl, as everything was always possible there. Drawing was her magic power! Her favorite place is any bookstore that has that old book smell. Aside from drawing, her favorite hobbies are doing projects with her sister, who is a toy designer, and watching old Argentinian soap operas. It inspires her to think that stories and art are slowly but surely changing the way people understand themselves and perceive others, building empathy and a more inclusive world.
