This Saturday, the award ceremony was held for Baja California playwright Hugo Alfredo Hinojosa, at the Universidad Autónoma de Ciudad Juárez, to receive the José Fuentes Marres National Award for his book "King Kong Cabaret". The last award given to this genre of playwriting was 5 years ago, since every year different literary genres are recognized.

The award was presented by the rector of the UACJ, Juan Ignacio Camargo Nassar, who celebrated the award to the Baja California playwright and praised the work of the university in favor of culture.

Hinojosa highlighted the value and importance of the arts and literature and acknowledged the efforts made by the UACJ to keep alive the humanistic spirit of the university.

The arts, he said, are a way to keep alive the concept of justice in society that promotes the strengthening of more just societies. The Tijuana native's book and his work are already embedded in the country's literary tradition.

The José Fuentes Mares National Prize is one of the most important awards in the world of Mexican literature, which recognizes narrative, poetry, theater, novels and essays.
