Plan B 4.0Today we learned that the Farsi edition of Plan B 4.0 was one of two books that received an award for the Best Environmental Book of the Year by the Iranian Environmental Protection Agency. Writing a book worthy of a prize is one thing, but translating a book is another. For that, we give credit to the translation team of Drs. Hamid Taravati and Farzaneh Bahar. It would not have happened without them.

The ceremony was held Monday, November 16, at Iran’s EPA in Tehran and was the first Iranian festival of environmental books. The award was presented by Mrs. Ebtekar, the Vice President of Iran and President of the EPA. Our own Janet Larsen met Mrs. Ebtekar when she gave presentations in Iran some ten years ago.

Meanwhile, last month we learned that Breaking New Ground, Lester Brown’s memoir, had received the Santa Monica Public Library’s Green Prize for Sustainable Literature.
