Who would like to know exotic places, new languages and phrases, and different points of views? Almost every reader would answer yes to this question. A trip to Latin America definitively will fit all three of these categories, but not everyone can afford an adventure of this nature. That is why we say that books take us places. We have curated a list of books that you can read this year to get you closer to the cultures of these countries. Here is a preview of new books of 2019 from Latin America.
