How are you holding? The past few weeks have changed the way we do things and will continue until a vaccine comes available. Just take precaution in public places. Physical events will take longer to come back but virtual events is becoming the new big standard. Finally all those home projects seem to be happening and virtual learning is becoming more popular as well. Take advantage of such opportunities. Las últimas con todo lo ocurrido han cambiado la manera que hacemos las cosas y continuará hasta que una vacuna este disponible. Toma las medidas de salud necesarias en lugares públicos. No se podrá asistir fisicamente a eventos por un tiempo pero los eventos virtuales ya son algo normal. Finalmente los proyectos en casa y el aprendizaje en linea son más populares también. Aprovecha estas oportunidades y crece.

Take care everyone!

formerly Latino Literacy Now


Started in 2019 as a monthly eNewsletter to 6,340 professionals and people interested in Latino events. This was the evolution of a newsletter for the Latino Book & Family Festivals that was started in 1999. The First festival was celebrated in 1997, and 68 Festivals have been held since then in eight markets around the USA including Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, Phoenix, San Bernardino, and San Diego. 

This newsletter is intended for those interested in the Latino community, business, and professional events around the USA. This 2020, the situation with COVID-19 has created a new focus for this newsletter which will be on webinars, digital events, and podcasts.

Goal: To fill a void in information about Latino events and increase learning and professional development.

Este boletín de eventos empezó el 2019 con circulación mensual dirigido a 6,340 profesionales y personals interesadas en eventos de crecimiento para la comunidad Latina. Este fue presentado como la nueva imagen del boletín que empezó en 1999 para la audiencia de Latino Book & Family Festivals. Estos festivales de libros fueron el inicio de grandes logros y recursos traídos a las comunidades alrededor de Estados Unidos incluyendo ciudades como Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, Phoenix, San Bernardino, y San Diego. Hasta la fecha 67 festivales se han celebrado y en 2020 el festival número 68 se celebrará de forma virtual por un periodo de varias semanas (2-3 horas por semana).

Este boletín se enfoca en la comunidad Latina, negocios, y eventos profesionales alrededor de Estados Unidos principalmente.  Debido a la situación de salud con respecto a COVID-19, este 2020 el boletín se enfocará en eventos digitales, seminarios, y podcasts.

Meta: Proveer información sobre eventos para los Latinos y fomentar el aprendizaje y desarrollo professional.
