Hispanic Heritage

NUESTRAS VOCES

From beloved classics to bold new narratives,
celebrate Latinx voices with stories that transcend borders.
As a Mexican-American myself, I remember feeling a distance from the things I watched or read growing up because I never saw anyone who looked like me represented in the art and entertainment around me. Luckily, these days people are paying more attention to inclusion, making it so much easier to find works by and about Hispanic people. Here are some newer titles, classics, memoirs, and more written by Latinx authors—some in English, and some in Spanish. I hope you can find a listen here that speaks to you. —Aaron, 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.
