National Latinx Heritage Month is a period from September 15 to October 15 in the United States during which time we honor the contributions of Latinx Americans to the United States and celebrate their heritage and culture. The commemoration begins each year on September 15, the anniversary of independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Mexico, Chile and Belize also celebrate their independence days during this period.
National Latinx Heritage Month is celebrated in myriad ways, from parades to concerts to food fairs. Another way to celebrate is to learn. “Latinx” is a more contemporary term used to describe people who are of or relate to Latin American origin or descent. It is a gender-neutral or non-binary alternative to Latino or Latina. These Children’s and Adult titles are just some of our bestselling books recognizing the contributions and influence of Latinx Americans to the history, culture, and achievements of the United States.
