HAYWARD, Calif. - Oct. 1, 2014 - PRLog -- It’s been an award-filled fall for independent publishing house Gracefully Global Group LLC based in the San Francisco East Bay.

The firm’s founder, Graciela Tiscareño-Sato, a 2014 White House Champion of Change, Woman Veteran Leader, was awarded the 1st-Ever ALBA (Americas Latino Book Award) in the Non-Fiction category at Colorado’s Americas Latino Eco Festival in mid-September. The award was for the first book in the Latinnovating series titled Latinnovating: Green American Jobs and the Latinos Creating Them (ISBN: 978-0-9834760-0-9), ten case studies showcasing Latino-led innovation, leadership and entrepreneurship in the green economy across a wide variety of industries. This book contains several childhood-to-STEM case studies of highly-educated engineers that can serve to inspire millions of students.

Then, last week, the firm’s first book in the planned bilingual aviation adventure series, Good Night Captain Mama/ Buenas Noches Capitán Mamá  [ISBN: 978-0-9834760-3-0], received an award in the “Children under age 12” category at the annual Military Writers Society of America award ceremony. This comes on the heels of the award in the “Best Educational Children’s Book – Bilingual” category at the International Latino Books Awards held at the 2014 American Library Association convention this summer.

“Having our literature receive recognition from both the military literary community and the Latino literary community is a huge thrill for our innovative publishing firm born three years ago,” said the founder and CEO. “Clearly, the world is ready for more literature from and about the American Latino community. Our two book series, found both in print and in all eBook formats, inform and inspire ALL students of all ethnicities and races, because of the focus on role models in careers that require higher education, STEM fields and a lifetime of learning. We serve students from preschool to B school, with literature, live presentations and Skype author visits into the classroom.” Visit http://www.gracefullyglobal.com/commerce for details.

Graciela is now booking speaking engagements for 2015 for educational conferences, professional association gatherings and to serve student veterans enrolled at universities. Her life as the child of immigrants, Berkeley alumna, military aviator and entrepreneur with a social mission through literature, is serving to educate students around the nation. Her presentations motivate college-going thoughts and actions and also open the minds of adults who benefit from literature that raises the expectations of Latino students.
