It’s Hispanic Heritage Month. The National Hispanic Heritage Month website explains that this month is for “celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.” It is celebrated between September 15th and October 15th (there actually is a reason for those dates). We have a few excellent YA titles you could read in celebration. 

For information about these titles and even more titles to choose from, please visit Rich in Color.
