Green Book Festival Winners

greenbookThe overall winner at the Green Book Festival this year wasLife Everlasting” by Bernd Heinrich which  “focuses on the fascinating doings of creatures most of us would otherwise turn away from – field mouse burials conducted by carrion beetles; the communication strategies of ravens; and the inadvertent teamwork among wolves and large cats, foxes and weasels, bald eagles and nuthatches in the cold-weather dispersal of prey. The judges awarded top honors because of the book’s original vision and keen scientific eye. ”

There were winners in many other categories, one to note is the winner of the Business Category was Greening Libraries – edited by Monika Antonelli/Mark McCullough – congratulations! There are many great chapters in this book (including one I wrote 🙂 so I hope you check this award winner!
