The August issue of El Sol Latino is out! Pick up a hard copy, or download it here (16-page PDF). For back issues, click on “El Sol Latino” under “Topics” on the right hand side of this web page. This month’s issue features: Desfile Puertorriqueño (Puerto Rican Day Parade); Festival de la Familia 2009 Nuestra Música; articles on Mass teacher test bias, the value of bilingualism; a review of Carlos Ruiz Zafón’s new book, “El Juego del Angel;” and much more.
Of particular interest is an announcement of Natalia Muñoz (formerly of The Springfield Republican) and Beatrice O’Quinn Dewberry’s new multi-cultural communications firm, Dewberry Muñoz Communications. Muñoz explains: ““This is not solely about a banker or a politician translating their marketing materials or flyers into Spanish or Vietnamese, although that’s a start. It’s about reaching communities in culturally meaningful ways that create lasting, positive connections.”
