Latino LifeWhat I'm Reading

Some titles for Hispanic Heritage Month

By September 15, 2019No Comments

Repeat after me:  “I will read works by Latinx authors throughout the year.”

It goes without saying that good books are good books – any time of the year. And yet, I know it’s Hispanic Heritage Month, September 15 through October 15. So, here’s a quick look at a few hot-of-the-press works that I think you might want to pick up.

Dancing Hands by Margarita Engle and illustrated by Rafael López (picture book, August 2019)

The Gumazing Gum Girl: Book 4 Cover Blown by Rhode Montijo (chapter book, October 2019)

Strange Birds:  A Field Guide to Ruffling Feathers by Celia Pérez (middle grade, September 2019)

The Fresh New Face of Griselda by Jennifer Torres  (middle grade, August 2019)

Each Tiny Spark by Pablo Cartaya (middle grade, August 2019)

The Other Half of Happy by Rebecca Barcarcel (middle grade, August 2019)

The Truth Is by NoNieqa Ramos (young adult, September 2019)
