Latino Books Month

From the Association of American Publishers

AAP Latino Voice for America: "Latino Books Month
What is Latino Books Month?

The Association of American Publishers Publishing Latino Voices for America (PLVA) Task Force has declared May Latino Books Month.

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."

This is another program that seems consistent with our mission and Paragraphs should be able to work with the local ISDs and public libraries to make sure we celebrate the rich heritage these authors provide our common heritage. It may also be an area we can develop some joint events with the El Paseo Arts Council.
