Artist/Author Lilibeth Andre from Houston visited the library today and talked about her book The Lady of the Turquoise Pendant. The self-published book is about an Aztec princess who must fight for her father's kingdom that is doomed to fall into the hands of the evil and bloodthirsty high priest. The 8 illustrations were painted by the author and include all of the main characters in the story.
Ms. Andre talked to nineteen classes which included Spanish, English and art classes. The teens had many interesting questions such as her inspirations for the different faces in the art, if artists today use live models, and why she chose to self-publish versus the traditional path.
Thank you Ms. Andre and we look forward to the next book in the story!
