¡Triunfarán! wins Latino book award!

¡Triunfarán! has won first place in the “Best Religious Book” category of the 2017 International Latino Book Awards Competition held September 9 at California State University, Dominguez Hill.

Kirk Whisler of Latino Literacy Now said, “Congratulations for your achievement and your involvement. Thanks for making a difference in Latino publishing.

“The number of books written annually by Latinos in the United States has grown from less than 300 in 1980, to a few thousand in 1997, to between 25–30,000 a year. So there’s been a tremendous evolution going on,” said Whisler. “Since 1998, we’ve honored 2,404 authors from all over the world.”
