Celebrating Latinx (Hispanic) Heritage Month

There's controversy over the name Hispanic Heritage Month and whether it truly represents the diverse people and cultures it is intended to celebrate. There is even debate over whether it should be Latino, Latinx or Latine. Either way, the sentiment of Hispanic Heritage Month should be to celebrate the culture of millions of Latinx people living in the United States and who embody the American experience. No matter how you identify, we want to create a space to celebrate the contributions of the Latinx community. The titles in this collection represent just a small snapshot of important works by Latinx authors. We hope they can create and continue conversations around the struggles and triumphs of Latinx people. Enjoy!
