La Bloga

La Bloga is one of the liveliest, best and most current resources available on everything pertaining to Chicana/o literature today. In 2006 La Bloga won the “Best Blog” award from Los Angeles’s Tu Ciudad magazine. The blog describes it’s scope as: “Chicano Literature, Chicano Writers, Chicano Fiction, Children’s Literature, News, Views & Reviews. [También de Chicanas.]”

La Bloga’scontributors, though their credentials are not listed, are amazingly knowledgeable and articulate about the subjects they cover. Writers from many cities across the U.S. and “Aztlan” contribute to the blog. Posts are always current, entertaining and informative. The blog also features links to an enormous number of Chicano authors’ websites and other blogs on the topic of Chicano literature.

I strongly recommend this blog to anyone with an interest in contemporary literature in the United States, but especially to anyone at all wishing to learn more about the Chicano literary scene. Librarians and teachers will want to take special note of this blog for making recommendations to readers and students.
