The Preston Media Center is excited to announce the Preston Reads 2018 Book-it is The Lightning Queen by Laura Resau. May 8th, 2018 10:30am - 12:30pm.

This is a free event AND has limited space.  Registration is required via

Nothing exciting happens on the Hill of Dust, in the remote mountains of Mexico in the 1950s. There's no electricity, no plumbing, no cars, just day after day of pasturing goats. And now, without his sister and mother, eleven-year-old Teo's life feels even more barren.

And then one day, the mysterious young Esma, who calls herself the Gypsy Queen of Lightning, rolls into town like a fresh burst of color. Against all odds, her caravan's Mistress of Destiny predicts that Teo and Esma will be longtime friends. Suddenly, life brims with possibility. With the help of a rescued duck, a three-legged skunk, a blind goat, and other unexpected allies, Teo and Esma must overcome obstacles, even death, to fulfill their impossible destiny.

We look forward to reading this book together and spending time with Laura Resau!
