PIG PARK wins 2015 Texas Institute of Letters Award
PIG PARK wins 2015 Texas Institute of Letters Award April 29, 2015
--Bobby Byrd

Claudia Guadalupe Martinez scores again at the Texas Institute of Letters Young Adult Awards! Her novel PIG PARK. From Claudia's essays in LATIN@S IN KIDS LIT: As a kid, "I assumed everyone around me was Mexican. I lived less than a mile from the Texas-Mexico border, so we pretty much were Mexican. This neighborhood inspired my first novel, The Smell of Old Lady Perfume–a world vastly different from the one that surrounds my protagonist, Masi Burciaga, in my new novel Pig Park. Masi’s cast of neighbors runs the gamut from the Nowaks to the Wongs...I wrote Pig Park recognizing that the world my children will be a part of isn’t exactly one thing, and that this is the type of world many kids are increasingly growing up in.
