...it's so gratifying that the judges -- made up of leading agents, editors and reviewers -- saw such value in my work.
NEW YORK, NY (PRWEB) June 04, 2013
FAST FOOD VINDICATION, the provocative nonfiction book by hospital dietitian Lisa Tillinger Johansen, has been honored with two prestigious awards at the publishing industry’s largest U.S. convention, Book Expo America, in New York City. The nutrition-based book was lauded for its lively and informative blend of tips, anecdotes and statistics that makes the case that fast food is not the evil force as it has been commonly portrayed.
At a June 1st awards ceremony, FAST FOOD VINDICATION received the 2013 IndieReader Discovery Award in the Health/Medicine/Nutrition category. The award was sponsored by Kirkus, Indie Reader, and media partners USA Today and The Huffington Post. The same day, Johansen was awarded the Indie Excellence Award in the Nutrition category.
“I’m thrilled to see FAST FOOD VINDICATION recognized by these awards,” said Johansen, a Los Angeles-based Registered Dietitian who is employed at one of the nation’s largest health networks. “I set out to write a book that would inform, entertain, and help people eat better for life, and it’s so gratifying that the judges -- made up of leading agents, editors and reviewers -- saw such value in my work.”
Since its publication, FAST FOOD VINDICATION has received near-unanimous critical acclaim from such outlets as Kirkus Reviews (“A cogent examination of the fast food industry, presented in a fresh, clear style.”), Pacific Book Review (“…as important for people to understand as an urban survival guide.”), IP Book Reviewers (“Astonishing. An enlightening read.”), and many more.
