Books for Latinx & Hispanic Heritage Month

By Kaitlyn Spotts | September 15 2021 | GeneralEarly ConceptsSpanish & Bilingual Books

Penguin Random House is proud to celebrate Latinx & Hispanic Heritage Month.  We are highlighting the works of our incredible authors from the Latinx and Hispanic community whose stories and characters have a profound impact on our society.  Using #IAmLaCultura, join us this month and beyond in sharing stories of the Latinx and Hispanic voices shaping culture from food to music to politics and everything in between.

We recognize the importance and influence of this community and as such we are donating 15% of net proceeds on PRH.com from September 15th to October 15th, 2021 to the Hispanic Heritage Foundation in support of their mission to promote cultural pride, accomplishment and the great promise of the community through public awareness campaigns.
