(BIZ PAC REVIEW) Rush Limbaugh was awarded “Author of the Year” by the Children’s Book Council on Wednesday, despite early protests of his candidacy.

The announcement was made in New York City at the seventh annual Children’s Choice Book Awards gala, which benefitted the Every Child a Reader charity.

“Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims: Time-Travel Adventures with Exceptional Americans,”

When Limbaugh was named among the contestants for the 2014 Children’s and Teen Choice Book contest, outraged liberals demanded he be removed from contention. But the book council refused.
