- Cultural Calendar
May is Latino Book Month! It's a valuable opportunity to explore and celebrate Latino literature and to also explore bilingual titles. It also encourages booksellers, librarians, and teachers to promote books by and for Latino people while also inspiring readers to explore the beauty of Latinx literature.
Latinx authors have had a profound impact on literature as a whole, thanks to such gifted authors as Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Isabel Allende, Elizabeth Acevedo, Rudolfo Anaya, Sandra Cisneros, and many more.
Beyond the beauties of traditional fiction, Latinx authors are also making an impact in sci-fi, fantasy fiction, graphic novels, and comic books, which celebrate the richness and variety of Latinx culture while also exploring such timely issues as racism, social justice, family heritage, and much more.
