PNBA Book Award Nominees Print

Jacket covers from five of the PNBA Book Award nominees that are owned by the library

Since 1965, the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association has presented annual awards to recognize excellence in writing from the Pacific Northwest (defined by the author and/or illustrator residing in Washington, Oregon, Alaska, Montana, Idaho or British Columbia).  A new committee made up of independent booksellers is formed each March and the winning books are picked by the committee in mid-October.  This year's list of nominees includes some of my favorite reads this year and several yet-to-be-published titles that I'm really excited to read - it will be hard to choose one winner from these!
