Ring the alarm, fellow bookworms!
The Latino Literacy Now project is preparing for the 14th Annual International Latino Book Awards to be held in NYC on June 5, 2012, and is looking for noteworthy submissions to review.
In recognition of the outstanding contributions being made to Latino literature by publishers and writers around the world, the Latino Book Awards was created in 1999.
Submissions are now open for entries for books with a 2010 or 2011 publication date. Anyone may submit a book: authors, publishers, publishing industry professionals and friends of literacy. See the Entry Form for categories and qualifications.
There are over 50 categories to submit your favorite book’s name and have it officially recognized and help promote literacy in the Latino community and beyond.
The entry fee for the submission includes passes for 2 guests to the awards ceremony. *Latino Literacy Now is a 501(c)(3), not for profit organization dedicated to advancing the cause of literacy in the Latino community and to promoting reading as a life long pursuit for personal and professional fulfillment.
Entries must be in by March 15, 2012.
