Author House is pleased to announce that “American Stew: Hope in a Toxic Culture” was named a winner in the Cultural Criticism category for an Independent Press Award.

The book authored by culture critic Stephen James offers a fresh perspective on the problems that plague America, as well as much-needed solutions. By applying modern social science and interdisciplinary thought to contemporary American issues, James offers a sweeping and relevant analysis of a culture that has become toxic for its members.

The Independent Press Award recognizes hundreds of books and publishers with its 2017 IPA winners and Distinguished Favorites in categories that range from Adventure to Young Adult Fiction. 2017 independent publisher winners include the American Psychological Association, Blackstone, Galaxy Press and Select Books

Selected award winners and Distinguished Favorites are based on overall presentation and excellence. The 2017 Independent Press Award competition included international submissions from countries such as Australia, Canada, China, Germany, India, Portugal, the United Kingdom and the United States.

“Awards are another way to increase a book’s marketability and credibility. We expect winners and Distinguished Favorites in our annual Independent Press Award to receive a heightened level of attention with hopes of translating into book sales, licenses and additional content distribution,” said awards sponsor Gabrielle Olczak.
