Letters from HeavenLydia Gill will be presenting her new middle-grade novel, Letters from Heaven / Cartas del Cielo, on Saturday, January 10th at 2:00PM at the Tattered Cover – Colfax location. In Letters from Heaven, Celeste is heartbroken when her grandmother dies. But everything changes when a letter mysteriously comes in the mail—from Grandma! As letters continue to arrive from the beyond, each with a recipe of a favorite food her grandmother used to prepare, Celeste consoles herself by learning how to cook the dishes. Meanwhile, without Grandma’s Social Security check Mami needs to get a second job to make ends meet. Celeste has to quit dance lessons, and a bully at school gloats that she will replace Celeste as the star in the upcoming recital. To top things off, her friends think that she has gone crazy . . . dead people can’t send letters! Published in bilingual “flip” format by Arte Público Press, this middle-grade novel celebrates the cultural traditions of the Spanish Caribbean, while tackling challenging subjects, such as trouble with friends and the death of a grandparent. The book includes six traditional Cuban recipes with easy-to-follow instructions.
