Join Michelle Ruiz Keil for the launch of her YA fantasy debut, ALL OF US WITH WINGS—a coming-of-age ode to post-punk San Francisco about love, found family, and healing, told through the eyes of a Mexican-American girl.
Seventeen-year-old runaway Xochi is alone in San Francisco, running from a painful past. She accepts a position as a precocious twelve-year-old’s live-in governess and quickly finds her place in the girl’s rockstar family household. But on the night of the Vernal Equinox, they perform a riot-grrrl ritual in good fun, accidentally summoning a pair of ancient beings bound to avenge the wrongs of her past.
