Latino authors are not getting published

We typically fail to realize the ethnicity of published authors. What we don’t realize at times is the lack of diversity in authors. It is mentioned in this article that supposedly “hispanics don’t read” and this is why there are so few hispanic authors. When in reality there are quite a few and unfortunately this image of hispanics not reading is created. Unfortunately the response to this is that many latinos self publish or simply the fact that latino children very rarely see themselves in books.
