In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, GalleyCat will profile significant and emerging Hispanics in book publishing until October 15th. We will be raising important questions about the Hispanic market, some which even push the envelope and beg to be answered.
More importantly, we will shed light on some of the amazing people in publishing who have been quietly making powerful strides and opening doors for other Hispanics. By paving the way, they are increasing Hispanic cultural awareness, pride, and literacy.
Why is this issue so important to the book publishing industry? From a business stand point, the Hispanic population represents 15% of Americans which is certainly worthy of exploring.
