Submitted by edawson on September 24, 2020 - 12:33pm

Did you know that Hispanic/Latinx Heritage Month runs from September 15-October 15? This is a time dedicated to recognizing the achievements and contributions of Hispanic or Latinx (a gender-neutral alternative to the terms Latino or Latina) people to American society and culture. To celebrate this month, Sonoma County Library’s very own Hispanic and Latinx librarians pulled together some awesome books written by Latinx authors. Here are our YA recommendations!
