Latino Stories

The Latino Storieswebsite describes itself as “The credible source for Latino Literature.” It is compiled by John S. Christie, Ph.D and Jose B. Gonzales, Ph.D, both respected scholars, who co-edited a book on Latino literature called Latino Boom: An anthology of US Latino Literature.  Christie and Gonzales state that the website is for: “Students conducting research on Latino literature, faculty who have incorporated Latino Boom into their classrooms and readers who are eager to learn more about literature written by the largest minority group in the U.S.”

The website contains list of resources divided into the following categories: Latino Statistics & Facts, Latino Literature Resources, Latin American Statistics, Best Latino Works, and Latin American Literature Resources. Under each of these headings there are a number of excellent pages expertly compiled and updated by the authors.

This website is an invaluable, professionally executed resource. Christie and Gonzalez did an excellent job identifying part of their potential audience, but librarians will find this resource incredibly helpful for readers’ advisory, selection and reference work.
