IHS Press Award-Winners
Two IHS Press publications won awards this spring and summer. In April, The Quiet Hero: A Life of Ryan White by Nelson Price won a gold medal in the teen nonfiction category at the Independent Book Publishers Association’s annual Benjamin Franklin Awards. The Quiet Hero won another gold medal in July at the Foreword Reviews’ INDIEFAB Book of the Year Awards in the young adult nonfiction category. “IHS Press is proud that its book on the influential life of Hoosier Ryan White has been honored by Foreword Reviews,” said Ray Boomhower, interim senior director at IHS Press. “We are pleased that his story can be told to a new generation who may have forgotten about his battle for acceptance. We need more courageous people such as Ryan in this world.”
Indiana’s 200: The People Who Shaped the Hoosier State, edited by Linda C. Gugin and James E. St. Clair, was a finalist in the regional category at the Independent Book Publishers Association’s Benjamin Franklin Awards in April. It also won a silver medal at Foreword Reviews’ INDIEFAB Book of the Year Awards in July. The book is one of several books published by IHS Press endorsed by the Indiana Bicentennial Commission. It is a compilation of biographical essays recognizing 200 people from all walks of life who have made enduring contributions to Indiana since it became a state in 1816.
