Adam Gidwitz & Emma Otheguy present The Unicorn Rescue Society: The Madre de Aguas of Cuba
Greenlight Bookstore is thrilled to present Newbery Honor-winning author Adam Gidwitz for the virtual launch of the newest installment in his New York Times bestselling Unicorn Rescue Society, with special guest, co-author Emma Otheguy! In The Madre de Aguas of Cuba, the fifth book of this globe-trotting middle grade series about mythical creatures and their country of origin, the mysterious water serpent responsible for protecting the fresh water of Cuba has gone missing. Uchenna, Elliot, and Professor Fauna need to find the Madre de aguas and save the island from the drought that has set in. Will they be able to save the Madre de aguas and the threat to the community and make it home in one piece? Will the creature they are trying to save just eat them instead? Otheguy’s background as a historian of Spain and Latin America brings first-hand knowledge to the action-packed story. Greenlight welcomes kids and families to join Adam and Emma for a special live online reading and presentation about the book, where kids can ask questions too as part of our Q&A!
Please note: registration is required in order to log into this virtual event. Families can buy or preorder the book (out May 12th) and other Unicorn Rescue Society titles to ship right to their home in advance of the event or afterwards.
