Noche de Cuentos (Night of Stories) is a new family literacy program celebrating the power of story in the lives of Latinos, immigrants, and all families. It is sponsored by REFORMA and the American Library Association. Libraries can submit a mini-grant application to receive funds to host their own Noche de Cuentos event. More information is available at: http://nochedecuentos.wordpress.com/. The image at the right is the free poster that can be downloaded (from the website) by libraries, schools, and literacy organizations wanting to host their own Noche de Cuentos event. Latina author/illustrator Yuyi Morales provided the image (an illustration from My Abuelita, 2009, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) for the poster.
Registration for the 2010 National Latino Children's Literature Conference is now open and the call for program and poster proposals has been extended until February 26, 2010. For more information about this exciting event, visit the conference website: http://www.latinochildlitconf.org/ .
