Welcome to our third annual L4LL Día Blog Hop! We celebrate the literacy-focused event El día de los niños, el día de los libros (also known as Día) by spotlighting 12 U.S. Hispanic authors and illustrators on leading Latina blogs. This is important because it’s an opportunity to introduce our literary talent, including Día creator author Pat Mora, to the new and large audiences of top blogueras who cover a range of topics including education, politics, lifestyle, and culture.
The L4LL 2015 Día Blog Hop kicks off this coming Monday, April 27th and runs through Día on Thursday, April 30th. Each day, three Latina blogs feature a different Latino author/illustrator as these artists explore this year’s theme of immersion and its impact on their work and life.
Below is the schedule of the participating blogs which I’ll be updating each day with a direct link as each post goes live. We hope that you will follow along and share with your families and friends!
