We’re just over a month from the launch of our next Rick Riordan Presents adventure, Rebecca Roanhorse’s Race to the Sun! Inspired by the mythology of the Diné, also called the Navajo, Race to the Sun stars Nizhoni Begay, a young monsterslayer on a quest to save her father. The help of Spider Woman will be essential.
We’ve talked a little about her already, but that’s because this serious and enlightened advisor is so crucial to the story. She directs monsterslayers like our hero Nizhoni through the Glittering World to the House of the Sun. But she has a cozy side to her as well, weaving Navajo rugs in her desert trailer with her favorite telenovela on in the background.
Meet Spider Woman!
