Reading & Signing with Gabby Rivera

We are so excited to welcome Gabby Rivera to celebrate the release of Juliet Takes a Breath, moderated by the incredible poet, Yesika Salgado!

Linda and Elisa say of Juliet,"For us, mixed race, queer and straight, this book, this character grabbed us by our angry, feminist selves and defied us to stop reading.. This book takes our preconceived notions of culture, feminism, family, language, place and especially food, and allows us, like Juliet, to consider, reconsider, decide and remain open to changing even that because like Juliet, we keep meeting people who defy categorization...and are we really surprised about that?"

Gabby Rivera is a Bronx-born queer Latinx babe on a mission to create the wildest, most fun stories ever. She's the first Latina to write for Marvel comics, penning the solo series AMERICA about America Chavez, a portal-punching queer Latina powerhouse. In 2017, Gabby was named one of the top comic creators by the SyFy network, and one of NBC's #Pride30 Innovators. Gabby now makes magic on both coasts, currently residing in California. She writes for all the sweet baby queers and her mom.

Books are available for purchase in store and online at Only books purchased from Cellar Door Books will be granted access to the signing line.
