2007 NLG AWARD WINNERS

Regarding the winners of the Numismatic Literary Guild awards at
last week's American Numismatic Association convention, Leon Worden
writes: "The rumor you heard about Roger Burdette winning the Numismatic
Literary Guild award for Book of the Year is correct. For Roger, it was
a reprise of his success in 2006 when he shared the honor with Scott
Travers.  This year, Roger stands alone. The complete list of winners
can now be found on the NLG Web site."

Congratulations, Roger!  Whitman Publishing was also a big winner

committed to careful research, strong writing, and professional
book design. These prestigious awards reflect that commitment.”

Whitman president Mary Counts said, “The secret to successful
numismatic publishing is to start with the best authors, combine
