A Two-Fer!
A Two-Fer! April 21, 2009
--Cinco Puntos Press

At the Texas Institute of Letters banquet on April 18, The Smell of Old Lady Perfume by Claudia Guadalupe Martinez received the Friends of the Austin Public Library Award for Best Book for Young Adults. At the same time, Benjamin Alire Saenz received the same award for the Best Book for Children for his beautiful A Perfect Season for Dreaming.

Both of these books will be for sale at the LA Times Festival of Books on the campus of UCLA—where we’re headed on Friday. It should be a beautiful weekend at the UCLA campus. If you are in the neighborhood, come visit us at Booth #347.

The festival runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, April 25, and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, April 26. The festival is free, but you will have to pay to park on campus.
