HOT OFF THE PRESS: International Latino Book Awards Finalists List

  
 

The Finalists of the 2014 International Latino Book Awards were released yesterday, March 18.  There was some problems yesterday connecting to the LLN website and downloading the list so The Latina Book Club has printed the complete list below for reader convenience.

The Awards celebrate books in English, Spanish and Portuguese.  Finalists are from across the USA and from 18 countries outside the USA.  The Awards are divided into eight categories, including The Mariposa Awards given to Best First books; Children, Youth & Young Adult; Nonfiction; Fiction; Ebook & Audio; Portugese Awards; Design Awards and Translation Awards.  

The International Latino Book Awards will be presented on June 28th in Las Vegas as part of the ALA (American Library Association) Conference.  The Awards are produced by LatinoLiteracy Now, an organization co-founded by Edward James Olmos and Kirk Whisler, and co-presented by Las Comadres de las Americas and Reforma, the National Association to Promote Library and Information Services to Latinos.  For more information on the Awards, please contact Kirk Whisler, Latino Print Network, 760-434-1223, kirk@whisler.com.


The Latina Book Club congratulates ALL the Finalists, and looks forward to meeting them in Las Vegas!   ---maria
