Publishing Latino Voices for America Task Force
Committee contact: Tina Jordan
The Publishing Latino Voices for America Task Force was formed in 2002 in recognition of the growing Latino population in the United States. The goal of the committee is to heighten awareness and understanding, both among consumers and those in the industry, of books authored by Latinos, which appeal to all audiences - English and Spanish speaking, Latino and non-Latino. The Task Force is achieving this goal through a series of initiatives including Latino Books Month in June, the "Aja! Leyendo" campaign, which is the Spanish-language version of Get Caught Reading, educational seminars for the industry, and publicity at various industry events.
