Xelena González


Xelena González is the author of All Around Us (Cinco Puntos Press 2017), a picture book that deftly depicts her Mestiza culture and roots on the west side of San Antonio, Texas. Before moving to China to serve as an international school librarian, Xelena conducted community outreach for the San Antonio Public Library, specializing in early literacy programs. Along the way she has led various workshops in dance, creative writing, and interdisciplinary arts. These varied experiences add to the bag of tricks she hopes to take into her new adventures as a visiting author.
