EARTH FEVER Wins 2011 Silver Nautilus Book Award
Earth Fever, a book about social, personal and spiritual dimensions of climate change— released by Cosimo Books, a New York-based independent publisher— receives prestigious award for “Environment and Green Values”
New York, NY (I-Newswire) May 19, 2011 - Nautilus Book Awards, a leading book awards organization for cutting-edge books, announced that Earth Fever, Living Consciously With Climate Change, by Canadian Judy McAllister and Dutchmen Erik van Praag and Jan Paul van Soest, has been awarded the 2011 Nautilus Silver Award in the “environment and green values” category.
Nautilus Book Awards, founded by publishing innovator Marilyn McGuire, selects books each year that “promote spiritual growth, conscious living & positive social change, while stimulating the imagination and offering the reader new possibilities for a better life and a better world.” Previous winners include Deepak Chopra, Jean Houston, Andrew Weill and His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
Cosimo Books Publisher Alexander Dake said: “We are proud that Earth Fever and its authors are awarded this prize. When we released this book, we felt strongly about its importance for the ongoing dialogue on climate change. It is an honor for our authors to join the ranks of previous winners of this award.”
Earth Fever uniquely combines the current state of climate science with social, personal and spiritual aspects of dealing with climate change. The authors use their vast experience with sustainability, holistic education and transformational leadership to describe the change of consciousness and the community environment that is needed to tackle the global problem of climate change and its effects. This book is a call to action for all global citizens, and includes an appeal to the governments and leaders of the world to take personal responsibility to address climate change. Earth Fever will be presented at the upcoming Book Expo America, the premier North American publishing event, May 24 –May 26 in the Javits Center in New York (visit the Nautilus booth 2037).
Earth Fever has received positive feedback and wide praise, including:

-Pierre de Winter, Platform for Managers and Professionals

-Todd Rutherford, the Publishing Guru
