Reading Latinx Authors...and Calling for Publishing Industry Change

There are moments when I forget that our bookshelf at home and our library book bag are a little different than mainstream bookshelves and book bags. We intentionally curate a reading space that centers BIPOC authors and their work. Probably at least 25% of our books are by Latinx authors, whereas in the industry overall, only 6% of those in book publishing are Latinx.


WEEKEND HOMEWORK: DECOLONIZE YOUR BOOKSHELVES OR LIBRARY LIST

First, this is a reminder for us all to analyze our libraries (our bookshelves and our public library picks) and to decolonize them (WHY and HOW).


AND while you're at it, think about buying your Latinx books from a Latinx owned bookstore, like Booklandia in Oakland, California.
