Diane Wilson (An Unreasonable Woman, and the forthcoming Holy Roller) is being honored with the Open Doors Award by the Fort Worth chapter of the Society of Professional Journalist. The award “trumpets the record of an individual or organization in defending the people’s right to open government and open records.” Congrats Diane! Try not to get arrested before the ball! Hazel Henderson and Simran Sethi’s Ethical Markets: Growing the Green Economy garnered a bronze medal in the Axiom Business Book awards in the Business Ethics category.

Frances Moore Lappé was honored recently by the James Beard Foundation with its Humanitarian Award for 2008. And, finally Chelsea Green was given a “Longtime Leader” award during the recent second annual SustainPrint Leadership Awards, which recognize magazine and book publishers for their outstanding achievements in environmental sustainability.
