History, Spirit, Sanctuary
WINS NATIONAL AWARD!
We're very proud that CROWN HILL: History, Spirit, Sanctuary was chosen as the SILVER AWARD WINNER for Foreward Review's prestigious national IndieFab "BOOK OF THE YEAR" in the Regional Category! (Awards were determined by a panel of librarians and booksellers from around the country, in conjunction with Forward's editorial staff. Representing hundreds of independent and university presses of all sizes, IndieFab winners were selected after months of editorial deliberation over more than 1,500 entries in 60 categories. Winners were announced at the American Library Association's annual conference in Las Vegas.)
Something unique about this wonderful book is that you don't need to have family buried at Crown Hill to thoroughly enjoy it. In fact, you don't need to have ever stepped foot inside our gates to love it! The book is 11"x11", is hard bound, and weighs approx. 5.5 lbs!
BOOK REVIEW! You can read a wonderful REVIEW of our book by William A. Browne in the December 2014 issue of Indiana Magazine of History. (Please note that our second photographer, Richard Fields, was mistakenly omitted from the review.)
