GUESS WHAT – I WON THE BRONZE MEDAL – IPPY BOOK AWARD FOR WORLD HISTORY!

 

Ippy Bronz Medal

IPPY – is the Independent Book Awards:

“Conducted annually, the Independent Publisher Book Awards honor the year’s best independently published titles from around the world. The awards are intended to bring increased recognition to the thousands of exemplary independent, university, and self-published books released each year.”

So I applied for the award in two categories – Memoir and History.

I learned this morning that I am a bronze medal winner in the category of World History!

This is super exciting because:

  1.  My book won an award!
  2. The award is in the World History category – and I tried really hard to put Sam and Esther’s story in historical context and this award is confirmation that I did a good job.
  3. The two winners of gold and silver – are from Yale University Press and John’s Hopkin’s University Press.  So it’s kind of hilarious that right after these prestigious University Presses, comes Stare Lipki Press.  Ha.  So funny, right.  Who knew a tiny farming village in Poland would be the name of a Publishing Company one day!

What a wonderful way to go into the Chag of Pesach where we celebrate the birth of the Jewish people – we will keep the memory of those who suffered throughout our long history alive and be happy we are here to tell the tales.

I wish you all a Chag Kasher V’Sameach, a healthy and happy Passover.

    1. The Publisher is my own – I am self published. I named my press after the town where the Stys family lives in Poland.
