The largest publishing house in Slovakia – Ikar Bratislava, which also publishes the bestselling author Jozef Banáš, awarded the highest prizes this year again. Jozef Banáš was the only author to win two Platinum Book Awards for selling more than 25,000 copies. “I’m pleasantly surprised because I was counting on the novel about Baťa, but Code 7 surprised positively. It’s the biggest award for me because it’s a jury of 25,000 readers that gave me such credit. And to me it means more than any literary award because a book is only written when it is read,” thinks the successful author.
