Roni Capin Rivera-Ashford

Justin Ashford

Roni Capin Rivera-Ashford grew up in Nogales on the Arizona-Mexico border. Born into a pioneering Jewish family with roots in Eastern Europe, Roni embraced the languages, cultures and people on both sides of the border. Now a retired bilingual educator, her first book, "My Nana's Remedies / Los Remedios de mi Nana," is a classic, a parent's and teacher's friend for teaching children traditional values, as are her two other bilingual books: "My Tata's Remedies/Los remedios de mi Tata" and "Hip, Hip, Hooray, It's Monsoon Day!/¡Ajúa, ya llegó el chubasco!"

Her newest book is "Miguel and the Amazing Alebrijes" written in collaboration with her son, Aarón Rivera-Ashford, for Disney as a companion book for the Disney/Pixar movie, Coco.
