Latino Books Month, celebrated annually in May since 2004, promotes books by and for Latinos. This month-long celebration is sponsored by the Association of American Publishers (AAP), which encourages booksellers, librarians, and teachers to promote books by and for Latinos and encourage their communities to read Latino books in both English and Spanish. Discover a new author or re-read a favorite book this month to celebrate Latino authors and the fiction, poetry, drama, autobiography, art that they create! By launching Latino Books Month in Rhode Island, it is our hope that Latino young people aspire to become authors, writers and can unleash their creative spirit in words on paper. We also wish to highlight bilingual literature in all its shapes and forms.
