Austin, TX—Las Comadres & Friends National Latino Book Club announces its third annual Summer Reading List launching on June 2017, on the first official day of Summer.

“There are so many amazing books written by Latina and Latino authors,” said Julia L. Abrantes, Book Club Project Manager, “and in keeping with our mission to promote their works, we are sharing our Summer recommendations once again. So whether you are on vacation, commuting to and from work or simply enjoying fresh air outdoors, it’s the perfect time to pick up these books and enjoy the read alone or with others.”

Like our recent Spring Break List, our Summer Reading List offers a “baker’s dozen” of great books for readers of all ages, including fiction, memoirs, mysteries, history and an all-women anthology. Readers will be transported through time and around the world.

Coming soon !!!!


Las Comadres & Friends National Latino Book Club was started in 2007 in partnership with the Association of American Publishers to promote reading of Latino authors. All books are written in English by Latino authors. Membership is free and open to all readers. The Book Club is currently in 15 cities, with more cities to follow. For more information on the Book Club, visit

Each month, we feature a Book of the Month selection and one or two “Additional Conversations with” selections. At the end of the month, we have a teleconference with the authors. During the teleconference, our social media team has a Twitter Chat with comments and tidbits about the book, the author and insights gleaned from the conversation. Registration is open to all readers and is free. Early registrants to our teleconference may receive a copy of one of the books being highlighted that month. To register, visit
