Hispanic Heritage

NUESTRAS VOCES

From beloved classics to bold new narratives,
celebrate Latinx voices with stories that transcend borders.
This Hispanic Heritage Month, we are honored to present titles written by Latinx authors—some in English, and some in Spanish—that explore the various identities, cultures, and experiences in the U.S. and across Latin America. It is important to note that the intersection between Black and Latinx identity runs deep and yet, the Afro-Latinx experience remains largely invisible in literature and cultural conversations. During this quarantine, I’ve been making an effort to listen to a more diverse range of Latinx stories such as Elizabeth Acevedo's Clap When You Land and Marcelo Hernandez Castillo's Children of the Land which brought these topics to life. These stories are so important, now even more than ever before, to bring to consciousness the national conversation around race and social justice. —Edwin, Audible Editor

Hispanic Heritage Month

Started as Hispanic Heritage Week in 1968 by President Lyndon Johnson and was enacted into law as Hispanic Heritage Month in 1988.

Always starts on September 15 because five Latin American countries declared independence on September 15, 1821: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua.

The U.S Hispanic population now stands at 57 million, making up 18% of the U.S. population.
