The Friends of the San Antonio Public Library will recognize three authors and a visual artist at their 2018 Arts & Letters Awards ceremony. The honorees will include Laurie Ann Guerrero, Jan Jarboe Russell, John Phillip Santos, and Clifton Tinker.

Guerrero's first full-length collection, "A Tongue in the Mouth of the Dying" was released in 2013. Her latest collection, "A Crown for Gumecindo" received the 2016 Helen C. Smith Award from the Texas Institute of Letters.

Russell is a journalist and author of Lady Bird: a Biography of Mrs. Johnson, and the non-fiction New York Times bestseller The Train to Crystal City: FDR's Secret Prisoner Exchange Program and America's Only Family Internment Camp During World War II. She is a member of the Texas Institute of Letters and winner of its Prize for Best Book of Nonfiction for The Train to Crystal City.

Santos is a producer, journalist, author and educator. Mr. Santos holds the distinction of having been the first Mexican-American Rhodes Scholar. He was a program officer for the Ford Foundation and has worked as a journalist for a wide variety of publications.

Tinker is an artist and educator. He has been an artist most of his life and an educator for the past 30, working first at the San Antonio Institute and most recently at James Madison High School, where he is now head of the Fine Arts Department. His work that was perhaps most widely seen was "The Transition Game," the giant fabric collage he designed to change the conformation of the Alamodome for Spurs games.
