“The Illustrated Courtroom” Wins Global Ebook Award

CUNY Journalism Press authors Elizabeth Williams’ and Sue Russell’s critically acclaimed book, “The Illustrated Courtroom,” brought home the gold at this year’s Dan Poynter Global Ebook Awards.

The collection of courtroom sketches from some of the nation’s most famous trials of the last half century took first place in the competition’s Illustration in Non-Fiction category.

“We can’t thank you enough for taking part in the awards this year and for your contribution to promoting the value of ebooks,” an organization spokesperson said via email.

Award-winning author and publisher Dan Poynter founded the Global Ebook awards to highlight excellence in electronic publishing. The annual competition is open to authors, publishers, illustrators and photographers.

Earlier this year, “The Illustrated Courtroom” also won four medals – two gold and two silver – at the annual eLit Book Awards, an independent organization honoring digital books. It was the first time in the history of the competition that a single book has won four awards.
