This event is free and open to the public  and will take place at the Salt Lake City public Library 210 East 400 South, Salt Lake City, UT 84111.

Please join Newbery Medalist Matt de la Peña and Caldecott Honoree Christian Robinson, the creators of the #1 New York Timesbestselling Last Stop on Market Street,  for a presentation of their new picture book Carmela Full of Wishes.

When Carmela wakes up on her birthday, her wish has already come true—she’s finally old enough to join her big brother as he does the  family errands. Together, they travel through their neighborhood, past the crowded bus stop, the fenced-off repair shop, and the panadería, until they arrive at the Laundromat, where Carmela finds a lone dandelion growing in the pavement. But before she can blow its white fluff away, her brother tells her she has to make a wish. If only she can think of just the right wish to make…
