Arte Public Press 2006 Catalog

I just got the Arte Publico 2006 Catalog in the mail. I think other have received this already and I don't know if we received it late.

Some of the news that they give out:

Down Garrapat Road was a finalist in the Texas institute of Letters Fiction Award and Winner of the ForeWord Book of the Year Silver Award-Juvenile Fiction Category.

The Frog and His Friends Save Humanity/La rana y sus amigos salvan a la humanidad was the Recipient of the 2006 Skipping Stones Honor Award

I am René, the Boy/Soy René, el nino was the Winner of the 2006 International Latino Book Award—Best Children’s Picture Book—Bilingual. We already mentioned this on the blog before. It also got a Special Recognition for the 2006 Peterson Prize for Books for Young People.

Little Crow to the Rescue/El Cuervito al rescate received Special Recognition by the 2006 Peterson Prize for Books for Young People.

I'm still in mourning over the death of Arturo Islas, even though that was over a decade ago. I'll just never get over there being no more novels like The Rain God.

I'm assuming you saw the link dedicated to him. Fedrick Aldama has put out a series of book on Islas including Islas' uncollected works and biography. I have the link to my review of "Dances with Ghosts" on some archived blogs on this blog.
