Primeras Reseñas
de LA MENDOCINA
en Bookstagram

"Me gusto mucho este libro. Escrito desde la cotidianidad, la autora le da a Mercedes una voz distinta y poco visibilizadla, de la que sólo parecemos enterarnos por las famosas ¨máximas¨ que San Martin le deja… Al mismo tiempo, el libro nos permite conocer distintas facetas de San Martín en las que no solemos detenernos a pensar: no sólo la de aquel militar libertador, sino también la del abuelo amoroso, la del hombre que empieza a sentir el peso de los años, la del padre agradecido.

Me emocioné muchísimo con una parte de su testamento…Sin duda La Mendocina es una lectura preciosa con hechos históricos, una pluma de época muy precisa, la voz de una mujer invisibilizada bajo los logros de su padre y un San Martín que no solemos ver."

Disfruté mucho de esta lectura, está muy bien estructurada y la edición es bellísima. Si bien la historia está narrada a modo de diario, también incluye cartas, menciones a notas periodísticas, un mapa, fotos de la época de la vivienda y de personas del mismo entorno. Todo esto no sólo nos ayuda a reconstruir un panorama de lo que fueron los últimos días de San Martín, sino que también demuestra el trabajo que hubo detrás. Gracias por darme la oportunidad de leer tremendo libro."

THE VATICAN GAMES FINALIST OF THE FOREWORD INDIES BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARD!

17 March 2021


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE FROM


THE 2020 FOREWORD INDIES BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARDS


THE VATICAN GAMES Named 2020 Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Awards Finalist!

Clink Street is pleased to announce THE VATICAN GAMES has been recognized as a Finalist in the 23rd annual Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Awards.


As part of its mission to discover, review, and share the best books from university and independent publishers, Foreword Magazine, Inc. hosts an annual awards program each year. Finalists represent the best books published in 2020. After more than 2,000 individual titles spread across 55 genres were submitted for consideration, the Finalists were determined by Foreword’s editorial team. Winners will be decided by an expert team of booksellers and librarians—representing Foreword’s trade readership—from across the country.


The complete list of Finalists can be found at:

“The pandemic did not slow down the quality of great books coming from the independent publishing community in 2020. The Finalist selection process this year was one of the hardest our team encountered due to the vast number of excellent submissions,” said Victoria Sutherland, publisher.

“While in typical years, the judging process involves our team gathering and discussing books in real time, this year, we had to read separately, take notes, and converge to discuss the entrants after we’d all taken a turn with them on our own. While at first the change was nerve-wracking, we were delighted to discover that we’re as much in agreement when the process takes place across miles and weeks as we are when we’re sitting face-to-face,” says Managing Editor, Michelle Anne Schingler. “We’re as confident as ever that these Finalists reflect the best of the books that we’ve had the privilege of seeing.”


Since 1998, Foreword Reviews has provided trade book reviews of the best titles from independent presses. Its FOLIO award-winning design and editorial content makes the magazine a favourite among librarians, booksellers, and readers—an excellent resource when it comes to purchasing books. Foreword INDIES and the fee-for-review Clarion service complement our online content and print magazine, helping to showcase independent presses and their authors.
