    In conversation with Laurie Halse Anderson

    The first Latina to write for Marvel comics, Gabby Rivera created the popular AMERICA series, featuring the eponymous multiverse-hopping superpowered queer Latina dynamo Miss America, aka America Chavez. Honored as one of the SyFy network’s top comic creators and one of NBC’s #Pride30 Innovators, she has also contributed short stories to several anthologies, including The Secret Loves of Geeks, Sound Bites, and A People’s Future of the United States. In Juliet Takes a Breath, Rivera offers up an audacious queer coming-of-age tale about a newly out young Puerto Rican from the Bronx who embarks upon an eye-opening internship with her idol.
