JKP Wins Gold at the 2011 Independent Publisher Book Awards

We are thrilled to announce that JKP has won several medals in the 2011 Independent Publisher Book Awards, including two Gold medals!

Darold A. Treffert’s Islands of Genius: The Bountiful Mind of the Autistic, Acquired, and Sudden Savant won the Gold medal in the Psychology/Mental Health category. 

Rudy Simone’s Aspergirls: Empowering Females with Asperger Syndrome was also awarded a Gold medal in the Sexuality/Relationships category.

And Life After High School: A Guide for Students with Disabilities and Their Families, by Susan Yellin and Christina Cacioppo Bertsch, tied for the Bronze medal in the Education/Academic/Teaching category.

The “IPPY” Awards, launched in 1996, are designed to bring increased recognition to the deserving but often unsung titles published by independent authors and publishers. Medalists will be honored at a gala awards ceremony in New York City on May 23rd.

Congratulations to the editors, authors and everyone who contributed to these award-winning JKP books!
