Okra Picks: Great Southern Books Fresh Off the Vine
The Okra Picks are a dozen fresh titles chosen each season that SIBA Indie Bookstores want to handsell. These books should be southern in nature but can cover any genre, not just fiction. Southerners love their writers, and we want to be at the forefront of bringing them a strong selection of southern titles not to be missed each season.
A new harvest of Okra Picks will be announced each publishing season. To nominate a book you must be a SIBA bookseller.
