James Cañón chosen as the 2009 #1 Latino Author to Watch and Read!

LatinoStories.com, the most important Latino literature website in the US, has chosen James Cañón as #1 among the 2009 Top Ten “New” Latino Authors to Watch (and Read). The announcement was posted last week on the website. Here is what the editor wrote:
“When we nominated [James Cañón] for our One Brown Book, One Nation program earlier this year, we knew that this author was something special. In fact, if I had to choose one must-read Latino author this year, Cañón would be it. This book has already won significant awards including France’s prestigious Best First Foreign Novel Prize. I really believe that it will be a short time before Cañón becomes one of the most widely read authors in the U.S.”
Other authors among the Top Ten are Fred Arroyo, The Region of Lost Names, Cecilia Samartin, Broken Paradise, and Matt De La Peña, Mexican WhiteBoy.
