Celebrate Latinx Heritage Month by reading along with us! This book list features nonfiction and fiction by and about Latinx/Hispanic authors and characters from all over the world. And if you don’t know where to start, check out our list of Latinx/Hispanic authors recommending novels by other Latinx/Hispanic authors!

This Latinx Heritage Month we want to hear your story! Share with us on social media what Latinx Heritage Month means to you or your favorite Hispanic author or story, with the hashtag #CuentosUnidos, and every time you do we’ll make a donation to We Need Diverse Books.*

*For each social media post using #CuentosUnidos, Penguin Random House will donate $1 to We Need Diverse Books (up to $15,000) in celebration of Latinx/Hispanic Heritage Month (from 9/15/19 through 10/15/19).
