Chelsea Green Authors win big!

Chelsea Green’s authors have been winning big recently for their work as individuals and as writers, and even we’ve been honored for our environmental commitment as a publisher. Congrats to everyone!

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!
