One of San Benito’s very own was recently recognized for a children’s book he published last year.
Dr. Hector Barrera’s book, “Bart: The Pear Tree That Grew An Apple,” won first place in the Children’s book category of 2014 Northern California Publishers and Authors (NCPA) Book Awards.
“We were really surprised because, as you well know, it’s a home product,” said Barrera about the award. “I entered it into the Northern California Publishers and Authors (NCPA). It won first place for Children’s and it won honorable mention for the book cover and design.”
