IPNE Book Awards 2019 was the 6th year we’ve held the event. Check out the 2019 winners, in a wide range of genres.

Every year, the Independent Publishers of New England runs its book awards program with the aim of recognizing the best of the best in recent independent publishing. These are awards that serve the industry by rewarding publishers and authors for exemplary work and providing readers another means of navigating an increasingly noisy marketplace.

The awards are judged by a panel of distinguished librarians, booksellers, literary agents, and editors. The winners are honored at the annual conference in November

Winners and finalists in 10 categories (plus the IPNE Book of the Year) were presented with their award certificates at the IPNE Book Awards 6th Annual Ceremony, on November 2, 2019.

Congratulations to IPNE’s  Book Award 6th Annual
