In 2009 The London Book Festival gave awards for outstanding books in 20 different categories. From the 20 categories a Grand Prize winner was chosen. It was Stan Goldberg’s Lessons for the Living: Stories of Forgiveness, Gratitude,and Courage at the End of Life. The judges said they were “overwhelmed” by the book. Stan will be flying to London to receive the award at a gala dinner on January 21, 2009.
