2008 HOLLYWOOD BOOK FESTIVAL NAMES WINNERS

HOLLYWOOD (July 12, 2008)  The 2008 Hollywood Book Festival has named Stan Lerner’s novel “Criminal” as the grand prize winner of its annual competition honoring books worthy of greater attention from the film, TV and multimedia industries. A graphic but page-turning account of the rise to power of the world’s most calculating and dangerous man, “Criminal” is the story of Sam Noah, who will do whatever is necessary to achieve his ends. Lerner’s saga of this mastermind of evil was honored during awards that were part of a weekend festival at the Grove at Farmers Market in Hollywood that featured author readings, live music, book publishing panels and children’s entertainment. The event was presented in conjunction with Barnes & Noble Booksellers.

Lerner’s victory earned him $1500 and a week-long stay at the Larimar St. Croix Writer’s Colony in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Other winners and honorable mentions for the 2008 Hollywood Book Festival:
