This time of year, giving gifts can leave many stumped. What do I get my kids, my mother-in-law, my best friend? We have a suggestion: books. The Toy or Gadget of the Season comes and goes. But books are a classic — promoting learning, imagination, and sharing with family. For little ones, there’s the book-centered family activity of story time. For older kids, it’s a great conversation starter with your teen.
Latinas for Latino Lit (L4LL) is proud to announce “L4LL Read for the Holidays” — a reading centered, month-long event on our website beginning December 1st until December 31st. You’ll find a Q & A with one of our favorite authors, our recommendations on holiday-themed books in English, Spanish, and bilingual. We’re also working on a Google+ Hangout on Air with a muy special guest.
To make this busy time easier for the busy Santa elf in you, L4LL is offering one-stop shopping, with children’s and adult books for sale at a specially discounted price that will also help us continue our mission of promoting literacy and education in the Latino community.
