Stepdog on Las Comadres & Friends National Latino Book Club Summer Reading List

What do “Stepdog” and “The House on Mango Street” have in common? We both made it on  Las Comadres & Friends National Latino Book Club’s first ever Summer Reading List!

Started in partnership with the Association of American Publishers, Las Comadres/FNLBC promote books written in English by Latino authors. They have 15,000 members and hold monthly book club meetings and teleconferences.

I’m honored to be in the company of Sandra Cisneros and so many other awesome authors, including Sonia Manzano (“Becoming Maria: Love and Chaos in the South Bronx”), Andi Teran (“Ana of California”), Richard Blanco (“The Prince of Los Cocuyos — A Miami Childhood”), Cristina Garcia (“The Lady’s Matador Hotel”) and Eleanor Parker Sapia (“A Decent Woman”).

The late Oscar Hijuelos’ “The Mambo Kings Play Songs of Love,” a classic, is also on the list.

Go Latinos!
