Rhode Island Latino Books Award

Promoting bilingual literature, illustrators and authors

The Rhode Island Latino Books Award (formerly Latino Books Month @RILA), now in its ninth 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.
For more information about the Rhode Island Latino Books Award and/or to participate, contact Maria Cotto, RILA's Latino Books Award Coordinator For information about Rhode Island Latino Arts, contact Marta V. Martínez, RILA'S Executive Director.
