THE SOCIETY OF THE FOUR ARTS: History and Legacy book has been chosen as a Finalist by the 2018 Next Generation Indie Book Awards. The Society of the Four Arts, a non-profit cultural organization located on Palm Beach, released the book earlier this year to celebrate its 80th Anniversary and document its noteworthy history.

West Palm Beach marketing and publishing company, StarGroup International, worked with the organization’s executives to produce the award-winning book.

As the largest not-for-profit awards program honoring independently published books, The Next Generation Indie Book Awards was established to recognize and honor the most exceptional independently published books each year. It is considered to be the equivalent of a Sundance award in the publishing world.

Boasting eight decades of world-renowned art and sculpture, manicured tropical gardens, fine architecture, and cultural programs, the 140-page book is interspersed with photography, historical content, and fond recollections from current members and visitors.

Katie Edwards, Director of Communications at The Society of the Four Arts, and editor of the book, is pleased with the result stating, “The publication has been very well-received by visitors, performers, and public officials. It exemplifies our ongoing commitment to the Arts in its many forms, through our diverse programs that range from art exhibits to concerts and lectures, workshops, and children’s programs. She continued, “In addition, it illustrates the cultural impact of the organization in the community, and why it is important to continue the legacy.”

Brenda Star, President of StarGroup International, is thrilled that the book has received an Indie Book Award, stating, “We are tasked with helping organizations effectively communicate, educate, and advance their goals through books. We are proud to have produced another award-winning book, but the most important measurement to me is our client’s success.”
