About the Press | How to Order Books | Submission Guidelines


Latin American Literary Review Press was founded by Dr. Yvette Miller in 1980 with the principal objective to familiarize readers outside the field with Latin American literature.

LALRP's emphasis has been on publishing translations of creative writing (Discovery series) and literary criticism (Exploration series). These were soon followed by bilingual Spanish/English editions of poetry. Publication of books of Spanish music began later, and young adult titles were first offered in 1989.

LALRP has always aimed for excellence in publishing, and has relied on a prestigious body of academic editors and distinguished and accomplished translators. Our books are ordered by booksellers, and public and university libraries throughout the world. The press receives financial support from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, and from various other institutions and private foundations.

We at Latin American Literary Review Press are proud of our continuing contribution to the cultural heritage of Latin America and Spain. We hope you will enjoy our publications.
