2006 American Book Award

Last month I posted about a friend and classmate who got some incredible news. He’s put out a press release so I can go ahead and talk about it. Tim Z. Hernandez has won the 2006 American Book Award for his book of poems: Skin Tax.

It is incredibly exciting. I got his book back in January when I heard his interview on Nuestra Palabra radio. And the poetry was so awesome I bought another copy for Doris’ brother.

We’ve talked about doing some kind of interview to post on here. Tim and I have great writing conversations. But I’ve never written an actual interview and don’t know how I could get it down. But I’m going to give it a shot.

Tim is great person and a dedicated writer. He’s been doing this for a long time, years and years. It’s inspiring to see hard work get rewarded.
