The Spanish Institute for Foreign Trade (ICEX) and the Spanish Association of Publishers Guilds (FGEE) have developed the campaign America Reads Spanish, aimed to increase the use and reading of our language through thousands of libraries, schools and book stores in the US.
America Reads Spanish believes that the Spanish language will enhance the communication between cultures at a time when it is of utmost importance to understand and enrich everyone's perception of the global reality.
The importance of the Spanish language as an economic resource has also enabled various organizations from Spain and from other countries in Latin America, to support this project by helping us to promote:
The awareness of Spanish books and authors in this country, through retailers, local libraries and the school and University systems.
The presence of books in Spanish in the US literature and reading in Spanish
To better convey and disseminate this message, America Reads Spanish is counting on numerous partners that include professional associations, bookstore chains, public and private libraries and prominent Hispanic associations in this country.
