May is Latino Books Month!
Tipped off by Little Willow, I'm now aware that May is not only about Fusion Stories and Asian Pacific Heritage Month, it's also Latino Books Month. Here's the announcement along with an interesting list of books pulled together by the Association of American Publishers Publishing Latino Voices for America (PLVA) Task Force:
Throughout the month of May, booksellers, librarians, and others in the book industry are encouraged to promote reading among Latinos in their communities, and to raise awareness of the rich variety of books authored by Latinos that are available, in both English and Spanish.
