We have learned that Fill'er Up has been selected as a finalist by ForeWord Magazine for their 2008 Book of Year. Fill'er Up is a finalist in the Travel Book Category. We did not set out to write a travel book, but we are proud that it is seen as a useful guide to Wisconsin Stations. The winners will be announced at BookExpo in NYC on May 29th. Keep your spark plug wires crossed for us (or whatever it is that you choose to cross).
We also have proud company. Two other Wisconsin Historical Press titles have also been chosen as finalists. Jerry Apps book, Old Farm is a finalist in the Enviromental Category and Bobbi Malone and Kori Oberle's fourth grade textbook, Wisconsin: Our State, Our Story, is a finalist in Juve Non-Fiction. We stand proud among our friends and colleagues.
