About the event

The purpose of the event is to help and impart opportunities in the community, ideally reaching out to Multicultural families and youth. Highlight the importance of literacy (books, health, wealth) and promote awareness of college, career paths, and community resources. Meet our Award Winning role model authors as they share the importance of reading, activism & equal representation. 

The Multicultural Book & Family Festival of the Inland Empire Region is an extension of the Latino Book & Family Festival organized in collaboration with California State University San Bernardino and Empowering Latino Futures. Empowering Latino Futures has held 72 Latino Book & Family Festivals since the first one was celebrated in 1997. There has been festivals in eight markets around the USA including Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, Phoenix, San Bernardino, and San Diego.

The Latino Book & Family Festivals is a community program of Empowering Latino Futures, a 501c3 nonprofit headquartered in Fallbrook, CA. The organization believes that community success is limited by access to resources and so it provides this free setting to learn and be exposed to opportunities.
