We are so excited to celebrate Latinx authors, and the contributions they make to the literary world!
In fraught times, it is important to celebrate the diversity that truly makes this country great. And I may be biased as a bookseller, but what better way to celebrate than to read? This list pulls from lots of genres and experiences -- from hard-hitting, topical memoirs, to delicious gothic spook-fests, to fun, vibrant romance. Pick up any of these, whether you're looking to see yourself represented, or to gain insight into an experience outside your own!
Want some tips for what to read next? Find one of us whose tastes match yours, or explore new horizons with something you might never have picked up on your own. If you are store-side, come talk to us and experience our enthusiasm firsthand.
Anthony Horowitz is the best-selling author of the Alex Rider children's novels. He is also the man chosen by the estates of both Arthur Conan Doyle and Ian Fleming to continue the iconic Sherlock Holmes and James Bond series. Additionally, he is the author of my favorite book of 2017, The Magpie Murders, an homage to the great Agatha Christie. But in The Word is Murder, Anthony Horowitz is more than just an author of popular fiction; he is a character in his own book. Approached by disgraced detective inspector Daniel Hawthorne to write a true crime book detailing the murder investigation of Diana Cowper, Anthony finds himself visiting the scene of the crime, interviewing suspects, sparring with Hawthorne and possibly even solving the case himself. Delightfully inventive, the word is entertaining!
Spooky October is better with a book. Particularly one with dinosaur leads, whimsy, wordplay, and monsters. Take a break from frightful ghouls and noxious cauldrons to follow Optimus Yarnspinner as he seeks the author of an anonymous work in Bookholm, the City of Dreaming Books.
I've probably read Cannibal three times through by now, but still manage to glean something new with each reading. Sinclair has opened my empathy to a culture that is otherwise inaccessible to me, boldly challenging xenophobia with vibrant and unapologetically heavy imagery.
Sinclair is a classic-in-waiting and I cannot wait for the day she is taught alongside Maya Angelou and James Baldwin.
