Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with FP!

Why is Hispanic Heritage Month Important?

Since 1988, from September 15 to October 15, America celebrates the histories, cultures and contributions of her citizens who came to the United States from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America. As we celebrate the literature, art, and other accomplishments of Hispanic and Latinx people it is important to remember that what makes America great is our commitment to diversity and our promise to welcome all who wish to pursue life, liberty and happiness.

Below is a list of our books, from America and beyond, celebrating the writing and brilliance of Hispanic and Latinx authors and artists.
