Pura Belpré Winners at ALA

Yes, all of these images warrant an exclamation mark after their captions!

Xavier Garza, who won a Pura Belpré Honor for his book Maximilian and the Mystery of the Guardian Angel patiently signs the stack of books I brought to the Cinco Puntos booth!

Xavier's books. Look, there's the Maximilian cover with its shiny Belpré sticker!

Guadalupe Garcia McCall, winner of the Belpré Award for narrative for Under the Mesquite, signs ARCs of her new book, Summer of the Mariposas!

Duncan Tonatiuh signs a copy of his Belpré Award winning Diego Rivera: His World and Ours!

Margarita Engle, who won a Belpré Award for Hurricane Dancers: The First Caribbean Pirate Shipwreck, signs copies of her latest book The Wild Book!

And a little clip of Xavier speaking at the Beyond Books: Graphic Novels and Magazines of Color session on Sunday. What enthusiasm! Xavier is a great spokesman for comics and graphic novels in libraries.
