Thumbs Up! TCU Press Honored With Awards

A 'thumbs up' goes to the TCU Press for being recognized for their outstanding work as a publisher.

The TCU Press received the 2012 Texas State Historical Association's Kate Brooks Bates Award for Historical Research for Fighting Stock: John S. "Rip" Ford, a historical biography. This award is given annually for a significant piece of historical research dealing with any phase of Texas history prior to 1990.

Fair Park Deco: Art and Architecture for the Texas Centennial Exposition was named Honorable Mention recipient for the Texas State Historical Association's Ron Tyler Award for Best Illustrated Book on Texas History and Culture for 2012.

Log Cabin Kitty is being recognized as the best children's book in 2012 by the Texas Institute of Letters. The Texas Institute of Letters is the premier body in the state that supports writers and publishers and we are receiving one of its six major annual awards.

TCU Press seeks to expand upon the university's core mission through the discovery, development, and dissemination of knowledge by the publication of significant, relevant, and innovative titles in the areas of history and literature of Texas and the American West, with a distinct focus on the discovery and preservation of local history.
