Rhode Island Latino Books Award

Stacks Image 165533
The Rhode Island Latino Books Award (formerly Latino Books Month @RILA), now in its eighth year, promotes literacy amongst Latinos through the celebration of Latino authors, illustrators and books that highlight Latino culture and Latin American identity.
Through this year-long celebration, RILA encourages librarians, teachers, educators and booksellers to promote books written by and for Latinos, and we encourage all Rhode Islanders to read books in both English and Spanish and written by Latino authors/illustrators.
