Hispanic Heritage Month 2022
Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated each year from September 15 to October 15, originally just one week at its inception in 1968 and eventually expanded to a full month in 1988. September 15 is the anniversary of independence for several Latin American countries, and many more celebrate their independence throughout September and October. This is a month for everyone to celebrate the histories, cultures, languages, triumphs, struggles, and futures of Hispanic/Latinx Americans.
On October 11, the San Rafael Public Library will be hosting an author talk with Reyna Grande, in conversation with poet Yaccaira Salvatierra, in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month. Reserve a copy of her newest book, A Ballad of Love and Glory! While you’re waiting, check out some of these amazing authors, illustrators, poets, and more—not just this month, but year-round.
