An Award-Winning Blog?

That’s what we are, courtesy of the Metropolitan Washington, DC chapter of the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) – the largest IABC chapter in the country.. Specifically, last night Government Book Talk received a Silver Inkwell Award of Merit in the Government and Military Communication category. We were one of 21 winners out of more than 300 nominations submitted.

I mention this, not because we’re pleased and proud to receive such an award – although we are – but because it tells us that we’re on the right track in creating a venue in which Government publications get some of the attention they deserve, not as stereotypical dull doorstops, but as vital, information-packed, and often entertaining books that simultaneously open up the multifaceted and invaluable work of the Federal Government to the public at large.

Well, we’re not here to win awards, but to get the word out about the best of Government publications, past and present. I’m heading back to the vast Government Book talk vaults for more reading matter and, as always, I’ll be sharing what I find with you. Thanks for following us!

    Wearing two hats as an educator, I find your posts often enlightening and useful. I teach writing to scientists for whom English is a second language, and I direct a program that encourages elementary school girls to maintain their interest in science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics (STEAM). I sometimes forward your posts to others.

    Congratulations!

    My father was at Hickam Air Corp Field on 12/7/1941 and served from 1937 until the end of the war in the Pacific Theater.

    Unlike the Eighth Air Corp little has been written and even less credit has been given the men and machines of the 11 TH BGH and its’ Squadrons.

    I have been able to purchase many wonderful texts of this Units service ONLY through the GOVERNMENT PRINTING ORGANIZATION.

    Yes Congratulations is well deserved!
