We are very excited to announce that ForeWord Magazine has released the winners for their 2008 Book of the Year Awards. Among that list is Scarletta Press author, Cathy Sultan, who was given an Honorable Mention in the Political Science category for her book, Tragedy in South Lebanon: The Israeli-Hezbollah War of 2006.
Sultan combines compelling history and vivid personal interviews to relate the lives of the oft-ignored civilians of southern Lebanon and northern Israel during the July war of 2006. Throughout the book, these narratives of mothers, soldiers, activists and ambulance drivers on both sides are as memorable for their detail, honesty and the deep sense of tragedy they relate.
We are very proud of the message Sultan is able to voice on behalf of those often overlooked during this time and grateful ForeWord Magazine understood the importance of Tragedy in South Lebanon.
