LeaLA BOOK FAIR -- April 29- May 1
"Celebrando el Espaňol”
“La primera Ferial del Libro en Espanol de California”
Here at The Latina Book Club one of our goals is to promote literacy. Hence our motto: Read Latino.
Book Fairs are a great way to promote literacy and I just read in LatinaLista about the first annual international Spanish-language book fair in Los Angeles, the city with the largest Latino population in the U.S.
LeaLA is an initiative organized by the University of Guadalajara USA Foundation and supported by the Guadalajara International Book Fair, Feria Internacional del Libro; and the University of Guadalajara in Los Angeles. There will be over 80 publishers present and high-profile authors such as, Isabel Allende, Francisco Martin Moreno and Sandra Lorenzano. Plus, celebrities such as, Dayanara Torres, former Miss Universe; actress Kate del Castillo; and singer Jose Jose.
LéaLA, which translate to “Read L.A.”, will be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center from April 29-May 1, 2011. The three-day book fair is FREE to the public.
The three-day book fair promises to be exciting and vibrant. There will be plenty of cultural events and book signings as well as sessions on immigration, Latino culture, personal finance, physical health and the mysteries of love and sex.
