Three titles published by the University of Louisiana at Lafayette Press have earned Independent Book Publisher Awards.

The awards are one of the most prestigious honors for independently published books in the U.S. and other English-speaking countries. They are given in a range of genres and categories.

UL Lafayette Press titles that won recently announced 2018 IPPY awards are:

• “From the Kingdom of Kongo to Congo Square: Kongo Dances and the Origins of the Mardi Gras Indians,” by Jeroen Dewulf, received a gold medal for Southeast, Best Regional Nonfiction. The book traces the history of the Mardi Gras tradition to its roots in the ancient Kingdom of Kongo.

• “Marfa and the Mystique of Far West Texas,” by John Slaughter, earned a silver medal for West-Mountain, Best Regional Nonfiction. The book’s photographs capture the mystique of the tiny, remote town and illustrate its lure as a tourist mecca.

• “Come Sunday: A Young Reader’s History of Congo Square,” by Freddi Williams Evans, was awarded a bronze medal for Multicultural Nonfiction, Juvenile/Young Adult. The image-driven book provides middle grade students a window into New Orleans’ historic Congo Square.
