hosted by Tara Goldstein
A great conversation between Tara Goldstein the producer and host, with Karleen Pendleton Jiménez, author of the book The Streets Belong to Us. In this book, Karleen tells the story she wish she had growing up, one that provides representation for Mexican American children and a journey for kids that feel called by both girl and boy genders. In this discussion, we hear about why Karleen made this book for young people (8-12yrs) and the impact she hopes it has.
