Every year, Latine Heritage Month is celebrated September 15-October 15, coinciding with the anniversary of various independence days across Latin America. In honor of the month, we asked Libélula Books & Co in San Diego, California, a Latine and Indigenous-owned bookshop, to share their top 10 audiobook recommendations.
You can support Libélula and other Latine-owned bookshops all year long through Libro.fm audiobooks!
