Latino Books Month • RI, initiated by Rhode Island Latino Arts and now in its fifth year in Rhode Island, promotes books by and for Latinos. This month-long celebration encourages librarians, teachers, educators and booksellers to promote books written by and for Latinos and it encourages communities to read books in both English and Spanish.

Discover a new author or re-read a favorite book this month to celebrate Latino authors and the fiction, poetry, drama, autobiography, art that they create! By launching
Latino Books Month in Rhode Island, RILA encourages Latino young people to aspire to become authors, writers and to unleash their creative spirit in words on paper. We also highlight bilingual literature in all its shapes and forms.
