The Hispanic Reader’s 100th post!

Woo hoo! This is the 100th post of The Hispanic Reader! And after writing 100 posts, I can say it’s been a lot of fun – and a lot of work. I’ll be on hiatus for awhile to give myself a breather. While I’m gone, check out these posts from the blog:

• Features about Nobel and Pultizer Prize-winning authors, Afro-Latino authors, Latino poets, and a book club, a bookstore, literary magazines and writer’s groups devoted to Latino literature.

Interviews with Machete co-screenwriter Alvaro Rodriguez, journalist Edgar Sandoval, storyteller Joe Hayes, and novelists Julia Amante, Lyn DiIorio, Guadalupe Garcia McCall and Meg Medina.

Bios of some of great Latino authors, including many of the Nobel Prize winners, such as Gabriel García Marquez and Mario Vargas Llosa, as well prominent authors such as Roberto Bolaño, Sandra Cisneros, Carlos Fuentes and Manuel Puig.

Book reviews from the past year and classic books written by Latinas. My favorite books were Say Her Name by Francisco Goldman (which was also The Hispanic Reader’s first full book review), The Hummingbird’s Daughter by Luis Alberto Urrea and Loving Pedro Infante by Denise Chávez.

Plays written by Latinos, including recent Pulitzer Prize winner Quiara Alegría Hudes.

    Hello! I would like to mention Sebastian Rotella’s Triple Crossing and the main character, Valetin Pescatore. The read was awesome and it featured Latino, Cuban-American, and Mexican characters. Best, Andrew
