New Book by Interlex CEO Rudy Ruiz wins First Place in two categories at the 2014 International Latino Book Awards
The International Latino Book Awards were recently announced during the 2014 American Library Association Convention. Interlex Communications CEO Rudy Ruiz's book, Seven for the Revolution, won two First Place awards, one Second Place and one Honorable Mention. The book received First Place in Best Popular Fiction and the Mariposa Award for Best First Book - Fiction. Seven for the Revolution also won Second Place for Most Inspirational Fiction Book and Honorable Mention for Best Cover (Cover Design by Heather Ruiz).
"I am honored to have been recognized for my writing," said Ruiz. "But most of all I hope that the awards help shed more light and compassion on the subjects of my book: Latino immigrants, their dreams and their current plight. I hope people on the fence in the immigration debate read the book and that it helps humanize their approach to this urgent human rights crisis in our nation."
