Further and Other Reading from Mexican, Mexican-American, & Latinx Authors.

 

To help readers continue exploring the issues & making connections, we will include a bookmark with further reading recommendations for Mexican, Mexican-American, and other Latinx authors in all copies of American Dirt. This list includes fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and books for young readers and was compiled from suggestions by PSB booksellers and the many other resources available online. The first eight books in this list will be featured on the bookmark. We hope readers will continue to engage in this topic and explore the wealth of literature written about and around it, but also remember that no culture is ever defined by one crisis or ever speaks with only one voice.
