Welcome to the 49th episode of “This One’s Dedicated to…,” recorded live and in person at the 2022 South Texas Book Festival!

In this episode, Jennifer Ziegler and I share our quick conversation with author, filmmaker, and activist e.E. Charlton-Trujillo about the dedication they wrote for their debut picture book, Lupe Lopez: Rock Star Rules! (co-written with previous “This One’s Dedicated to…” guest Pat Zietlow Miller and illustrated by Joe Cepeda; Candlewick Press, June 2022).

Subscribers to my monthly Bartography Express newsletter (folks can sign up here) are eligible for one of four giveaway copies — two in English, two in Spanish — of Lupe Lopez: Rock Star Rules!
