Hispanic Heritage Month

 

#Celebrating Stories

National Hispanic Heritage Month highlights the histories, cultures and contributions of Americans who have Spanish and Latin American ancestry. It is celebrated September 15 through October 15 to coincide with and commemorate the anniversaries of independence for Mexico, Chile, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua.

#Book recommendations

Whether you’re celebrating your family’s heritage or hoping to learn more about people from other cultures, stories are a great way to explore what connects us and what makes each culture unique.

#Books for Kids

Looking for picture books or chapter books to share with the little ones in your life? Learn about A Girl Named Rosita (aka Rita Moreno), read a touching tribute to Selena: Queen of Tejano Music, or find out Who Was Celia Cruz?  

 

 

#Books for Teens

From the popular novel-in-verse Clap When You Land by Elizabeth Acevedo and the inclusive Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas to the National Book Award Finalist I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter by Erika L. Sanchez, there are so many great, engaging stories for teens and young adults.

 

 

#Books for Adults

If you enjoy murder mysteries and culinary cozies, check out Arsenic and Adobo by Mia P. Manansala. If romance is more your genre, you might just find true love with Part of Your World by Abby Jimenez.
