Lowriders in Space is a lovely celebration of Mexican-American culture, street art, and creativity. I fell in love with this YA graphic novel the moment I opened it. The story is light-hearted and fun, but it’s content also stirs up important questions about being bilingual, cultural heritage, and what constitutes “real” art and books. This is a great choice for educators looking to inspire deeper dialogue among youth, particularly surrounding culture and language. Bonus: Cathy Camper is a regional artist and librarian, based out of Oregon! [Christina]
