Great minds think alike. Alisa Alering's blog is exploring all kinds of ways we can read outside the box. Including this post on "Reading Outside Myself" with links to books written in languages besides English and this post with links on African American, Asian, Latino, and Native American writers. She also has a link for gay authors (who may or may not be white).
And the New York Daily News recently ran a list of favorite books of 2008 by Latino authors. Thanks to author Alicia Valdes-Rodriguez for the link.
