Benjamin Franklin Award Winner

Lucifer, poems by Philip Memmer, has been named as Silver Award winner in the 22nd annual Benjamin Franklin Awards from the Independent Book Publishers Association in Recognition of Excellence in Independent Publishing.

IBPA recently honored the best books in 50 categories at the annual Benjamin Franklin Awards in New York City on May 24, 2010 just prior to the annual BookExpo America Trade Show.

Judged by a panel of book industry experts, including buyers at wholesale and retail levels, librarians, book critics, design experts, and independent publishing consultants, these books have been scrutinized by individuals involved in the very markets in which the books are competing.

Named in honor of America’s cherished publisher and printer, the Benjamin Franklin Award recognizes excellence in independent publishing. Books are grouped by genre and are judged on editorial and design merit by top practitioners in each field. A panel of 150 judges from throughout the publishing industry weighed and evaluated close to 1,300 submissions in 50 categories to create the list of more than 150 finalists for the 2009 publishing year. Publishers large and small competed for the coveted Benjamin Franklin Awards.

IBPA, with more than 3,200 members, is the largest trade association representing independent publishers. Founded in 1983, its mission is to advance the professional interests of independent publishers.
