I love sharing about cultural events in the area and this is one that you will not want to miss. LeaLA, La Ferial del Libro en Espanol de Los Angeles/The Spanish Book Fair of Los Angeles is coming to to the Los Angeles Convention Center, May 11th to May 13th. LeaLA connects the top Spanish authors to their readers and fans.It is a cultural event like no other, featuring all that Spanish literature has to offer. Authors from every genre will be featured, along with storytelling in Spanish from various celebrities. From your favorite cook book author to your child’s favorite author, you are sure to find something for every family member.
I can’t wait to take my kiddos this year because I’m trying to introduce them to Spanish literature. I’m also taking my Dad because I think he’s going to love attending some of the sessions and presentations. I’m trying to teach my children Spanish and I can’t think of a better way to do it!
The fair is in it’s second year and better than ever! Here are some of the features of this year’s fair.
- Kids zone with workshops, interactive book readings and activities
- Readings from top celebrities
- Storytelling for the kiddos

Did I also mention that this event is FREE? You can enjoy a fantastic day with your familia learning all about Spanish Literature. I’m planning to heading there with my family and hope I can see you there.
