Since we are, after all, strong supporters of Latino literature and our HHM: Festival of Books is centered around them, we are so happy to share with you all two great reading lists that focus on biographies and autobiographies of influential Hispanics. We chose some that have been recently released, and some that are older. We give special thanks to author Carmen Amato for her suggestions, too.
It was so hard to narrow our lists down to no more than 15 titles. But know that we do have additional books we’ll be sharing her over the course of the next four weeks.
The first reading list is for kids and features fantastic titles to biographical picture books for children ages 4 and up. From music great Tito Puente to sports legend Roberto Clemente, your child will enjoy all of these exceptional stories.
The second reading list for adults is divided into seven categories: Public Service & Activists, Musicians, Athletes, Political/Historical Figures, Journalists, Artists & Actors, and Anthologies. Four of these books will be featured this month as part of our Weekend Book Club, and we’ll share more information about that soon.
Both reading lists are full color for those who like to add a decorative touch to your refrigerator door, or office cork board. But this time, we’ve kept budgets in mind, so for those of you who would like to save your color ink, you’ll find a black-and-white version available, too!
You can download both lists for free here.
