"The World is Just a Book Away" Wins IPPY Award!

Updated: Aug 30, 2022


The World is Just a Book Away won the Independent Publisher Gold Medal for Most Original Concept

For 34 years the mission at Independent Publisher has been to recognize and encourage the work of publishers who exhibit the courage and creativity necessary to take chances, break new ground, and bring about change, not only to the world of publishing, but to our society.

The medalists were chosen from our regular entries for exemplifying this daring spirit -- the book projects our judges found the most heartfelt, unique, outspoken and experimental among all the entries. All of these books earned IPPY Award gold medals.

Congratulations to this year's Outstanding Books of the Year!
