The love for the Spanish language and culture can cross borders! The stories, poems and illustrations of the books can reflect personal stories that touch our collective unconscious.
A team of talented community leaders has organized the Third Latin American Book (#LABF) in the city of Brotherly Love, Friday September 24, by 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., in the City Hall Courtyard during the celebration of Spanish Heritage Month.
This year’s promotional slogan is very inspiring: “Interact with authors and illustrators of incredible books, enjoy activities and workshops.” More than 25 authors (adults, teenagers, children) of fiction and non-fiction books will be present at the fair.
The committee would like to invite local families and schools who wish to promote a multicultural environment where languages and cultures around the world are valued.
The mission of the #LABF is to promote reading for all ages. They believe that children who get into the habit of reading from an early age are more successful in their school and adult lives. Reading in Spanish or bilingual Spanish/English, the “Book Party” is for participants of all ages.
The committee of Philibros, a Spanish mobile community library that provides free books, will create the “huacalibrero” for this book fair. In addition, the Fleisher Art Memorial’s “Color on Wheels” will showcase a family activity called “Positive Vibes.” In addition, Colombian singer-songwriter Laura Lizcano, the duet “De Tierra Caliente” and the group “Los Bomberos de la Calle” will perform on stage.
Committee members are grateful for the support of community leaders and the sponsorship of eighteen community organizations, including the Free Library, who support the success of this annual event.

Long live Spanish Heritage Month!
