David Hlavsa Wins Gold:
Walking Distance: Pilgrimage, Parenthood, Grief, and Home Repairs Wins Foreword Reviews’ 2015 INDIEFAB Book of the Year Gold Award (Adult Nonfiction).
Walking the Camino de Santiago, more than 400 miles across the north of Spain:
In the summer of 2000, David Hlavsa and his wife Lisa Holtby embarked on a pilgrimage. After trying for three years to conceive a child and suffering through the monthly cycle of hope and disappointment, they decided to walk the Camino de Santiago, a joint enterprise—and an act of faith—they hoped would strengthen their marriage and prepare them for parenthood.
Foreword Reviews’ INDIEFAB Book of the Year Awards honor the best books from Independent publishers, judged by a select group of librarians and booksellers from around the country. The annual awards are announced at the American Library Association Annual Conference.
