Latino And Latina Authors For Your Summer 2016 Reading List
It’s July and we’re in need of a Summer 2016 Reading List with Latino and Latina authors. Whether paper or digital, this is a good time to discover the richness of Latino and Latina authors for your Summer 2016 Reading List. PalacioMagazine.com came across this great list on NBC Latino, Your Summer 2016 Reading List: 9 Great Books by Latino Authors by Rigoberto González. It got me thinking about what else is out there including our own Long Beach Public Library.
First, the list from Rigoberto González:
- Black Dove: Mamá, Mi’jo, and Me, by Ana Castillo, Feminist Press.
- Presentimiento: A Life in Dreams, by Harrison Candelaria Fletcher, Autumn House Press.
- The Regional Office is Under Attack!, by Manuel Gonzales, Riverhead Books.
- Bloodline, by Joe Jiménez, Piñata Books.
Visit NBC Latino to see the rest along with the book descriptions.
