SIBA Book Award & The Decatur Book Festival - Page 2

 

Taking the SIBA Book Award to a New Level:

2008 is a landmark year for the SIBA Book Award, marking its transition to a new level of visibility and public awareness. Since it was first begun in 1999, the SIBA Book Award has become one of the most successful initiatives of the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance. Today, nearly ten years later, the list of award-winners represents some of the finest examples of Southern literature, and the award has become a fully entrenched respected entity among Southern booksellers and publishers. Beginning in 2008, the SIBA Book Awards Ceremony will be held as part of the Decatur Book Festival on Labor Day Weekend in Decatur, GA. The festival, which attracts upwards of 60,000 attendees each year, is open to the public and promises to garner increased exposure for the awards and the award-winning books and authors. SIBA will have a presence at the Decatur Book Festival with as many independents booksellers as can participate. The Decatur Book Festival will host a private reception for the authors and SIBA’s core members before the public awards ceremony, and the awards themselves will be included in the general festival publicity.
