2019 NHCC Children's Bilingual Book Festival

On Saturday, April 27, 2019, the National Hispanic Cultural Center (NHCC) in Albuquerque will host its first annual NHCC Children’s Bilingual Book Festival. Coinciding with National Poetry Month; Children’s Day, Book Day; Arbor Day; and Semana Cervantina/Poesía eres tu, this festival will celebrate children’s books written in Spanish and English and Native languages and English.

The focus on Spanish-English and Native Language-English books and authors makes this festival particularly meaningful and vibrant, reflecting the identities of many children in New Mexico and the Southwest. We want to encourage children to see themselves in contemporary children’s literature as well as introduce a bilingual body of work to a wider audience.  The festival will emphasize books for readers in grades K-6, though there will be activities for kids of all ages, including families.

The festival will also launch a summer reading program at the NHCC–connecting children struggling with reading with free reading tutors who will provide one-on-one and group tutoring at the NHCC over the summer.
