National Hispanic Heritage Month Resources

 

Though Hispanic Heritage Month is officially recognized from September 15 to October 15 in the USA, we hope this page becomes a perennial resource you turn to discover and share new voices, stories, bookstores, and organizations. We will be highlighting Latinx/Hispanic heritage links covering all languages and peoples of Latin America and the Iberian peninsula.

We invite you to learn more about this national celebration of Latinx culture on the National Hispanic Heritage Month website here.

*Please share any missed resources with Kiana at kianamartin@scbwi.org with “Latinx Resource” in the subject line. Thank you!
