Sofia U Professor, Author and LGBTQ Activist Judy Grahn Wins 2013 Independent Publisher Book Award
Date:5/16/2013

Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) May 16, 2013

Internationally acclaimed poet and Sofia University professor, Judy Grahn, has won a silver “IPPY” award on behalf of Independent Publisher, who this year celebrated their 17th Annual Independent Publisher Book Awards. Grahn’s memoir, A Simple Revolution – The Making of an Activist Poet, was awarded a silver medal in the category of Gay/Lesbian Non-Fiction. The awards ceremony to honor the medalists will take place on May 29, 2013 in New York, on the eve of the BookExpo America convention.

Grahn has written twelve books and poetry collections, including Blood, Bread, and Roses – How Menstruation Created the World, and Another Mother Tongue – Gay Words, Gay Worlds. She currently co-directs and teaches in the Women’s Spirituality program at Sofia University in Palo Alto. Grahn has received a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, an American Book Review award, a Before Columbus American Book Award, a Stonewall Award (formerly the American Library Award), and a Founding Foremothers of Women’s Spirituality Award.

A Simple Revolution is Judy’s first memoir and tells her life story from the age of eight to the age of forty. Widely recognized as one of the most iconic figures of the gay women’s liberation movement, Grahn’s memoir reflects on women’s and gay rights movements of the 1960s and 1970s. Particularly intriguing is her involvement with iconic figures and movements in history, such as the Black Panthers, the imprisoned Manson women, and Inez Garcia. Throughout her story, her perspective changes and she serves sometimes as witness, sometimes as participant, sometimes as instigator.

The "IPPY" Awards, established in 1996, are designed to bring increased recognition to deserving but often unsung titles published by independent authors and publishers. As the first awards program open exclusively to independents, over 3,000 "IPPYs” have been awarded to authors and publishers around the world.
