For 20 years, Kirk Whisler and actor Edward James Olmos' nonprofit Latino Literacy Now has promoted reading in the Latino community with various annual events, including the Latino Book and Family Festival, which is held in different cities. Just in time for back-to-school, more than 50 authors will be presenting their books and taking part in panels. The daylong schedule also features live music, ballet folklorico, kids activities and workshops on such topics as "Living La Vida Latina: Stories of Modern Chicas," "Overcoming Domestic Violence" and "How to Write a Children's Book."
