Voting to choose this year’s winners of the Indies Choice Book Awards and the E.B. White Read-Aloud Awards is open to the owners and staff at all ABA member bookstores until April 15. Have a say in selecting the titles that best reflect the spirit of indie bookselling by casting a ballot for your favorites now.
Every bookseller at an ABA member store is encouraged to vote; one ballot per person will be accepted. One winner will be declared in each category, with the exception of the Picture Book Hall of Fame, where booksellers will choose three inductees. The winners will be announced on April 18 and will be invited to take part in ABA’s Celebration of Bookselling Author Awards Luncheon on May 30 at BookExpo America.
The deadline to reserve a spot at the Celebration, which is free and open exclusively to two booksellers from each ABA member store, is May 10. Table assignments will be sent the week of May 20. Questions about the lunch should be addressed to ABA Development Officer Mark Nichols.
To help booksellers promote the finalists in newsletters and other marketing materials, ABA has made the Indies Choice Awards logo available for download here.
