Launch of www.librerialectorum.com with Mirta Ojita, Esmeralda Santiago & Victor Villaseñor Nov 19 in NYC
New York City's oldest Spanish bookstore, Librería Lectorum, closed last year. Many were saddened by the shuttering of the specialty bookstore -- a long time fixture on 14th Street and symbol of New York City's century plus Latino influence.
However, the good news though is that Librería Lectorum has been reincarnated as the nation's premier Spanish-language online bookstore. Continuing its decades-long commitment to the Latino community, this Fall Lectorum will launch a new Spanish-language website for consumers, offering tens of thousands of adult and children’s Spanish-language titles.
The founders and distinguished Latino authors are celebrating the launch of http://www.liberialectorum.com/ November 19th.
While the launch is an invitation-only, private event, members of the public are encouraged to log on to www.librerialectorum.com starting November 17th to see all that the site has to offer, including a recording of the Café Literario event.
