Every year, the Independent Publishers of New England runs its book awards program with the aim of recognizing some 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 book awards are judged by a panel of distinguished librarians, booksellers, literary agents, and editors. The winners and finalists are honored at an online awards event in January.

 Are you a book editor or reviewer? A literary agent? A librarian?
Or do you otherwise work with and evaluate books?

Consider serving as a judge for the Book Awards hosted by IPNE. It’s a wonderful way to engage with the independent publishing community — and to help readers discover fine books.
