About the Tomás Rivera Book Award

Dr. Tomás Rivera was the first Mexican American to be distinguished as a Distinguished Alumnus at Texas State University. He was a prolific author, whose writing spoke to generations of migrants. TSU created the Tomás Rivera Book Award to honor his legacy. The award is given to authors and illustrators "who create literature that depicts the Mexican American experience."
