Notable Latino Books
Our own Jose B. Gonzalez's 2nd poetry collection is a "moving collection of narrative poems ... that use iconic Latino and Latin American films as a guiding motif." Ideal for movie buffs and those who remember the names Ricardo Montalban, Lupe Velez, Edward James Olmos, and so many others.
  There is no doubt that we will be hearing much more from Jennifer Maritza McCauley. This is one of the best poetry books of 2017.
  Few artists have the unique combination of skills with the pen and the brush as Maceo Montoya. This is a much-needed contribution to Chicano studies.
  Daniel Chacon's The Cholo Tree takes you on a Joyce-like journey of a young boy who is trying to figure out life as others try to figure him out.
  Emmy Perez demonstrates her lyrical talents once again in her poetry collection, With the River on Our Face

  In All They Will Call You, Tim Z. Hernandez takes on an intriguing subject inspired by 28 deported Mexican farmworkers who died in a plane crash and whose names were ignored by the media but became part of literary history thanks to a Woody Guthrie song.

Raina J. Leon has wowed us in the past, and not surprisingly, she is wowing us yet again with her collection of poems, Sombra: (dis)locate.

  In El Legado: The Legacy, Ed Cardenas has written a sentimental Young Adult novel about an angry young man who has to look to his family's past for self-discovery.
  Raza Rising: Chicanos in North Texas by Richard J. Gonzalez is well-researched work that tells the stories of Chicanos from multiple angles.
  The Wandering Song: Central American Writing in the United States is the long overdue collection edited by Leticia Hernadez Linarez, Hector Tobar, and Ruben Martinez.
