May is Latino Books Month
The Association of American Publishers (AAP) has designated May as Latino Books Month and encourages booksellers, librarians, and others in the book industry "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." The AAP has various resources available on their website for download, among them recommended reading lists for adults and children; a guide to starting a reading group; Get Caught Reading/Aja! Leyendo posters; and information on planning author events.
