Author Torrey Maldonado Makes 2012 Top Ten List!
Congratulations to our friend author Torrey Maldonado for being named one of the Top Ten Latino Authors to Read and Watch for 2012 by LatinoStories. Here's what they had to say about Torrey and his book:
Torrey Maldonado's book [SECRET SATURDAYS] is one of the great success stories of the year. Given all the negative press that teachers have received in these difficult economic times, it's great to see a talent like Mr. Maldonado emerge. Following in the tradition of school teachers like Wally Lamb, whose debut grabbed national attention, this author is sure to continue to impress. This is a heartfelt story about a twelve-year old boy growing up in Brooklyn housing projects with a voice that is captured with great sensitivity.
