Washington, DC (PRWEB) May 24, 2006
The winners of the 2006 Benjamin Franklin Awards™ were announced by PMA on May 17, 2006, in Washington, DC at Book Expo America. The Benjamin Franklin Awards™, named in honor of America's most cherished publisher/printer, recognizes excellence in independent publishing and is judged on the merits of editorial and design quality, winners are chosen by top practitioners in each field.
The 2006 Benjamin Franklin Awards™ winner in the category of Audio Nonfiction is VOICES: A TRIBUTE TO THE AMERICAN VETERAN, by James McEachin, a 1998 Benjamin Franklin Award winner for his book FAREWELL TO THE MOCKINGBIRDS.
As the winner in its category, VOICES furthers McEachin's mission of commemorating those who have served and are serving in the United States Armed Forces. VOICES is a profound compilation of dramatic readings set against a musical story-line that pays tribute in a way only a Silver Star and Purple Heart veteran, accomplished actor, and award-winning author dares.
"No veterans, no democracy, no democracy, no America" is the closing line of the cd's title track. Abraham Lincoln said, "Any nation that does not honor its heroes will not long endure." It has been said by H. Ross Perot that VOICES: A TRIBUTE TO THE AMERICAN VETERAN is "... A magnificent, relevant statement that will mean a great deal to everyone who ever served in the Armed Forces and fought in combat. (James McEachin has) honored our military heroes by this tribute." Were he alive today, Benjamin Franklin would certainly agree.
