Gabby Rivera Cancelled

This author has cancelled their attendance with the Festival.

Gabby Rivera is a Bronx-born, queer Latinx babe on a mission to create the wildest, most fun stories ever. She is the author of the sold out smash solo series AMERICA about America Chavez, featuring Marvel's first queer Latina superhero and has also written in the Lumberjanes universe for Boom! Studios. "Juliet Takes a Breath" is her debut novel. Gabby now makes magic on both coasts, currently residing in California. She writes for all the sweet baby queers and her mom. When not writing, Gabby speaks on her experiences as QTPOC writer, an LGBTQ youth advocate, and the importance of centering joy in narratives as Latinx people and people of color at events across the country.

Her new book is "America Vol. 2: Fast and Fuertona."
