Marv Wolfman wins National Jewish Book Award
This just in from Marv Wolfman:
I don’t know too many details or the specific category as I just got the phone call but my book, Homeland: The Illustrated History of the State of Israel has just won the National Jewish Book Award. This is supposed to be the most prestigious of all the Jewish organizations. Once I learn more I’ll put it up on my website, but as I just got the call I thought I’d share it.
Homeland has previously won the Moonbeam Children’s Book Award for non-fiction, the USAbooknews.com adult award for history/politics and last week received a Notable Book for teenagers by the Sydney Taylor Book Award for the Association of Jewish Libraries. That means the comic-based book, actually inspired by my old History of the DC Universe book, has won non-comics acclaim for kids, teens and adults. As I say I don’t yet know the category for the National Jewish Book award but in that world this is the big one.
Homeland is drawn by Mario Ruiz and published by Nachshon Press.
Mazel tov, bubby.
