Square One's Two Finalists in the IBPA Ben Franklin Awards!

Posted: 2021/03/29

Garden City Park, NY: Square One has two finalists in the just-announced 2021 IBPA Benjamin Franklin Awards.

The titles are What You Must Know About Strokes in the "Health & Fitness" category, along with our hardcover The Knights of Columbus: An Illustrated History in the "History" category.

Winners will be announced in IBPA's live ceremony over four nights, May 11-14, 2021.

Last year saw Square One's audiobook version of Elliot Tiber's Palm Trees on the Hudson (an production brought to wonderful life by veteran actor/narrator Edwin Wald) bring home the Gold Medal in the 2020 IBPA Benjamin Franklin Awards for Best Audiobook - Nonfiction, and Square One has won for a number of its other titles over the years.

Hailed by Library Journal as "a clear and thorough guide that should be a solid one-stop resource for patients and their support circle," What You Must Know About Strokes ($16.95 USD, ISBN: 978-0-7570-0483-4) by stroke specialist Dr. Amytis Towfighi and best-selling health writer and stroke survivor Laura Stevens offers all the information stroke survivors and their loved ones need to know in order to ask the right questions and make informed decisions.

Meanwhile, The Knights of Columbus ($34.95 USD, ISBN: 978-0-7570-0308-0) stands now as the definitive book on this mainstay in contemporary Catholic life for many—a fraternal organization with well over 1 million members worldwide. This book has been declared "An approachable, worthwhile history of a venerable Catholic brotherhood" (Kirkus Reviews); a "well-designed history" (Publishers Weekly); and an esteemed text in which "Catholic and non-Catholic readers alike will find much to enjoy" (Booklist).

Square One is proud to have two finalists in this year's IBPA Benjamin Franklin Awards, and wants to congratulate all of our other fellow finalists in this great annual book awards ceremony.

What You Must Know About Strokes and The Knights of Columbus: An Illustrated History are both available on Amazon, B&, Bookshop, and wherever else books are sold.
