Gary Soto

This is the official website of Chicano author Gary Soto. Soto is best know for his works for children and young adults, though he has also published a number of works of fiction and poetry for adults. His children’s books include Chato’s Kitchen and Baseball in April and his most notable book for adults is his 1995 New and Selected Poems. This website contains biographical and bibliographical information. There is a “Catalog” section where users can order his books. The catalog is organized by age group, allowing browsers to select from a number of categories.

There is also and FAQ, a “What’s Up” section with an excerpt from a work in progress, contact information and information for students and teachers.

The website is maintained by Soto and his publisher, Putnam House. It is worth visiting for readers of Soto’s work, students and teachers studying Soto and his work, and librarians who do reader’s advisory for children and young adults. This resource is especially useful to children’s librarians and teachers looking to expand their knowledge of children’s literature by and and about Hispanic Americans.
