It's Latino Books Month --That Means Free Books for You!
Hello Meltingpot Readers,
I love it when other people make my life easier and the people at Hachette Book Group are doing just that by celebrating Latino Books Month.
Never heard of Latino Books Month? You thought May was the Mixed Race Experience Month? Well it is that too, but the folks in the publishing industry think Latino books deserve some celebrations of their own, so Latino Books Month has been created.
What does that mean for you? It means that one lucky Meltingpot reader will win not one, not two, but three books of their choosing, from the following titles written by Latino authors and published by Hachette Publishing Group.
Try to Remember by Iris Gomez
Hot (broke) Messes by Nancy Trejos
Waking Up in the Land of Glitter By Kathy Cano-Murillo
Little Nuggets of Wisdom By Chuy Bravo, with Tom Brunelle
Lone Star Legend By Gwendolyn Zepeda
Into the Beautiful North By Luis Alberto Urrea
Amigoland By Oscar Casares
It's a great selection of books as some of these are debut titles, there's a mix of fiction and non-fiction and the range of subject matter is as diverse as the Latino community itself.
So, without further ado, if you want to win three new books by Latino authors, leave a comment with the name of your favorite Latino author by Sunday at midnight. The winner will be announced on Monday. And sorry, because I'm not the one sending out the books, only folks in the United States and Canada are eligible to apply.
Make it a great weekend.
