Reviews and awards!

Lots has been going on here at Scarletta Press. While working hard to promote our most recent release, Yankee Invasion by Ignacio Solares, two prominent newspapers have written fantastic reviews and we couldn't be more excited.

The first one came from the Austin American-Statesman where Yankee Invasion was included on their "Summer Books '09" list. Thank you to Tania Lara for the nice review! View the entire article here: http://www.statesman.com/life/content/life/stories/books/2009/06/13/0613summerbooks.html

The next day, the Star Tribune's Kathe Connair gave a very insightful review in an article titled, "Memories of loss and anguish in Mexico." Connair writes:
"This may be, as Fuentes says, an important book for Mexican audiences, but in bringing out an English Translation, Minnesota c0-publishers Scarletta Press and Aliform Publishing have performed a service for U.S. readers interested in current U.S./Mexico relations."


Equally exciting, two Scarletta Press titles were recognized by the IBPA's 2009 Benjamin Franklin Awards. The New Writer's Handbook Volume 2 edited by Philip Martin was a finalist in the Career category while Written on the Knee by Helen Electrie Lindsay was a finalist in the Cover Design - Small Format category. Congrats to both authors! To view the complete list of winners click here: http://www.ibpa-online.org/pubresources/benfrank2009_Winners.aspx
