A Broad wins awards

June 18, 2008

Our good friend and longtime conferee Dodi Cross reports that her book, A Broad Abroad in Thailand: An Expat’s Misadventures in the Land of Smiles was awarded the Silver Medal in the Humor Category at the recent BookExpoAmerica, held at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The win was extended by ForeWord Magazine‘s Book of the Year Awards.

Dodi also nabbed First Place in the National Indie Excellence Book Awards, 2008, for Best Autobiography and placed as a Finalist in the Humor Category for A Broad Abroad in Thailand.

Way to go, Dodie! And to think that it all began with her SCWC award win at our very first Palm Springs conference.
