An Afternoon with Author Frederick Aldama

We are thrilled to welcome back author Frederick Luis Aldama in celebration of two new books, Through Fences and The Absolutely (Almost) True Adventures Of Max Rodriguez.

Through Fences (ages 12+) follows the ups and downs of Latino kids and young adults in the US–Mexico borderlands: San Ysidro, Calexico, McAllen, and back and forth across the border. 

In The Absolutely (Almost) True Adventures Of Max Rodriguez (ages 13+)Max (n e Maxine) could read before they could talk, devouring comics, novels, and books on philosophy. This helps them later to navigate the topsy-turvy life as a 9th grader in Nowheresville, California.

Frederick Luis Aldama is an award-winning author and editor of dozens of works of fiction, comics, animation shorts, and scholarly books, including Tales from La Vida, The Adventures of Chupacabra Charlie, and Con Papá / With Papá. The founder and director of the Latinx Pop Lab, he holds the Jacob and Frances Sanger Mossiker Chair in the Humanities at the University of Texas at Austin.
