For Kids and Their Grown-Ups: Meet Carlos Hernandez

Created by Laura Frantz, collection development librarian

SCLSNJ loves to connect authors and readers. Our latest Meet the Author series features Carlos Hernandez, creator of the popular middle grade Sal & Gabi series. The first book, “Sal & Gabi Break the Universe,” tells the story of 13-year-old Sal, who learns to reach into time and space to retrieve things – and people – from other universes, in order to heal after his mother’s death. 

The title, part of the Rick Riordan Presents imprint which highlights cultures and mythologies from around the world, features sci-fi elements with a Cuban influence. And Hernandez received the 2020 Pura Belpre Award for it. Discover more about the author at our upcoming event.
