Roni Capin Rivera-Ashford: A Jewish children’s author with a Mexican heart

More info about the film released in Mexico in late October for Día de los Muertos.

When Roni became a published author, she asked her mother-in-law if she could incorporate Rivera into her pen name, giving more credence to her Mexican heritage. (Hence, Rivera-Ashford.)

My Tata’s Remedies has won many awards, including First Place for the International Latino Book Awards as Best Children’s Non-Fiction Picture Book and Best Educational Children’s Picture Book and as a Notable Children’s Book of 2016 by the Association for Library Services to Children.

Written by Sheila Wilensky a writer, editor and educator living in Tucson.
