Yet another list of award-winners! This one's from the Southern Independent Booksellers. Ron Rash's Serena is their top fiction pick. Lots of categories to choose from, including Children's Books, which this year was won by Kirby Larson's The Two Bobbies. And a Young Adult book by Kristin Cashore, Graceling.
The past winners-- it's the award's 10th anniversary-- are also worth a look.
Here's what the group says about their lists:
The SIBA Book awards were created, not just to recognize great Southern books, but to give southern readers an enviable list of books to enjoy, read, buy, and give as gifts. As of this time, the SIBA Book Award remains one of the most far-reaching and high-profile awards for Southern literature.
