A reading and Q&A with Portland-based author and librarian Cathy Camper, author of the middle-grade graphic novel, Lowriders in Space, illustrated by Raúl the Third (ages 8–12), a story  sketched with Spanish, inked with science facts, and colored with true friendship: Lupe Impala, El Chavo Flapjack, and Elirio Malaria love working with cars. The stars align when a contest for the best car offers a prize of a trunkful of cash—just what the team needs to open their own shop! ¡Ay chihuahua! What will it take to transform a junker into the best car in the universe?
