National Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated between September 15 and October 15 each year, and honors the many contributions of Americans with roots in South and Central America, the Caribbean, Spain, and Mexico. To mark the occasion, we’ve gathered some of our favorite recent books from Hispanic and Latinx authors. These books come from a range of genres, and speak to a wide variety of heritages, cultural traditions, and experiences. Of course, these books represent a very small selection of the large body incredible work done by Hispanic and Latinx authors, and we encourage readers to read work from these authors not just this month, but all year long. Join us in celebrating, and dive in!
