[Book Giveaway] Silver People: Voices from the Panama Canal by Margarita Engle

To celebrate World Poetry Day and International Day of Forests (March 21, 2016), we'll be giving away a copy of Newbery Honoree and Pura Belpré winner Margarita Engle's middle grade to young adult novel, Silver People: Voices from the Panama Canal!

Masterfully written in melodic free verse poetry, Silver People "brings to life every bit of Panama, from the horrible working conditions of the islanders, forced to dig the canal for next-to-nothing wages, to the lush forest and wildlife" (School Library Journal). Engle has described the book as "my personal love letter to [the endangered] tropical rain forests." Many thanks to Margarita Engle for generously donating a signed copy of the book.
