TRONCOSO'S BOOK RECEIVES AWARD
CTN author mentor Sergio Troncoso’s book, A Peculiar Kind of Immigrant's Son, was named a 2019 Foreward Indies Book of the Year winner. Foreword Reviews, a book review journal focusing on independently published books, announced the winners on June 17. The awards recognize the best books published in 2019 from small, indie, and university presses, as well by self-published authors. Over 2,100 entries were submitted in 55 categories, with Foreword’s editors choosing approximately 9 finalists per genre. Those finalists were then delivered to individual librarians and booksellers tasked with picking the Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Honorable Mention winners.
Troncoso’s book is a collection of linked stories on immigrants finding their home beyond the border, trying to fit in, and being outsiders as present struggles and memories of the past pull them in different directions.
