12 Great Books for Hispanic Heritage Month

From bu.edu: This week kicks off National Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 to October 15), which honors the generations of Hispanic and Latinx Americans who have positively influenced the nation. The observance began with a week in 1968 under President Lyndon B. Johnson, was expanded to a monthlong celebration by President Ronald Reagan in 1988, and was enacted into law later that year. The unusual mid-month beginning and ending was chosen to coincide with the independence days of several Latin American countries, including Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua, as well as Mexico and Chile. The month is also referred to as Latino Heritage Month or Latinx Heritage Month (the latter includes Brazilian culture).
To celebrate, we've put together a list of a dozen books by Latinx authors spanning various genres, including romance, horror, YA, and nonfiction, that draw on their Afro-Latinx, Mexican, Dominican, Chicano, and Boricua cultures."
