Red Balloon Bookshop is thrilled to celebrate the release of The Notebook Keeper, the stunning picture book by Stephen Briseño and local illustrator Magdalena Mora!

Based on true events, this inspiring story follows a mama and her daughter who are denied entry at the U.S. border and must find the refugee in charge of “the notebook,” an unofficial ledger of those waiting to cross into the U.S. Stephen Briseño and Magdalena Mora will be joining Red Balloon virtually to read a little from the book, chat about the making of The Notebook Keeper, and take time for questions from the audience!
