Green Book Award: Nominations Wanted

We’re seeking nominations for the next Stevens Center for Science Writings Green Book Award, the first of which was given to Edward Wilson for The Creation: An Appeal to Save Life on Earth. Candidates for the award, which includes a check for $5000, must be nonfiction books that address environmental issues and are published sometime in 2007.

Just to give you a sense of what we’re looking for: A close runner-up to The Creation was Fields Notes From a Catastrophe: Man, Nature and Climate Change, by Elizabeth Kolbert. If we had given out the award a year earlier, it would have gone to Jared Diamond’s Collapse (even though technically it was released at the end of 2004). Publishers, authors, readers can submit nominations to me at jhorgan@stevens.edu or (if you want to send the book) John Horgan, Center for Science Writings, Stevens Institute of Technology, Castle Point on Hudson, Hoboken, New Jersey, 07030.
