Award Winning Books Directory, International Latino Book Awards
The purpose of this site is to present a collection of Award Winning Books from the International Latino Book Awards with the goal to spread visibility for Latino literature. This program helps open doors for national and international authors in the publishing world in the United States. This online listing project was accomplished thanks to the support of Amazon Literacy Partnership. Thanks to them this directory will continue to grow from here and provide book profiles from numerous books. This directory provides authors a platform where they can see their book listed with description and author biography. We hope this listing becomes a place where many people, organizations, schools, and librarians can find more Latino books to read, share and help educate others.
Disclaimer for authors: The information from each title is provided by the author. Please note that not all books are listed here, substantial amount of time is required for a complete directory; therefore, if your book(s) is not listed, please be patient as we compile all the details.
