'Lucky Luna' author visits students at Faye Webb Elementary School

Students went home with signed copies of books from Diana Lopez.

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A Corpus Christi author known for writing the book "Lucky Luna" made an appearance at Faye Webb Elementary Friday to talk to students about storytelling.

Diana Lopez talked "Lucky Luna" and her book adaptation of the Disney movie "Coco" and her childhood in Corpus Christi.

Lopez hopes to inspire students to share their own stories and unique perspectives in their writing because their lives are interesting without them realizing it.

"I'm hoping to inspire them and let them know that if there is something that they truly want to achieve, they can achieve it. It doesn't take being from someplace else. You are here and this is a special place and let's celebrate all that we have here," Lopez said.
