BOSTON (December 28, 2010) _ The 2010 New England Book Festival has named “Smoke, Fire and Angels: Tragedy on Avon Mountain and the Life-Changing Aftermath” by Mark Robinson as the grand prize winner of its annual competition honoring the best books of the holiday season. The gripping story of a “perfect storm” accident as told from the perspectives of the various participants, the book is a human drama that shows how tiny details added up to a tragedy that claimed four lives and caused 19 serious injuries. Author Robinson, himself injured in the accident, has a keen eye for reporting the details of a series of choices that resulted in the disaster. His skill at story-telling and his unique method of relating what happened impressed the festival judges and won him the top prize of the competition. The winners, runner-ups and honorable mentions will be honored at a ceremony to be held Saturday, January 15, 2011 at the Omni Parker House Hotel in Boston.
