National Hispanic Heritage Month
Why “Hispanic” instead of Latinx? Why September 15th - October 15th?
NPR has an article specifically addressing these questions: “Yes, We Are Calling It Hispanic Heritage Month and We Know It Makes Some of You Cringe.”
We celebrate this month with a booklist of books by Hispanic/Latinx authors in recognition of cultural contributions of an estimated 62 million people or about 18 percent of the US population!
Check out our ebook list on Sora including some eye-opening nonfiction (https://soraapp.com/library/nycschools/curated-1251349/page-1 with DOE login):
And some very popular fiction highlighting engaging stories by Latinx authors that will connect you to memorable characters (audiobooks also available)!
