Foreword‘s Book of the Year Awards program was designed for booksellers and librarians to share in the process of discovering distinctive books across a number of genres with judgments based on their own authority and on patron interests. After months of winnowing down the award finalists’ list, the editors at Foreword are confident in their selections, and our judges agree, saying this year’s titles are the best they’ve seen!
For those of you planning a trip to ALA this year, join us as we formally announce the 2011 Gold, Silver, and Bronze Award Winners, as well as the Editor’s Choice Prizes for Fiction and Nonfiction. For the first time, the event will be held on the floor of the conference at the PopTop Stage, located in the Exhibit Hall, Saturday, June 23, beginning at 10 a.m. Everyone is welcome as we reveal the best independent titles from 2011.
