2016 Awards Year
For books published January 1, 2016 through December 31, 2016
The Reading the West Book Awards provide an opportunity to promote authors, increase book sales, expand reach, and create awareness.
Reading the West is a program sponsored by Mountains & Plains Independent Booksellers Association that assists publishers, authors, and booksellers in promoting and building sales for exceptional books and authors in the Mountains & Plains region.
These adult and children’s titles exemplify the best in writing and/or illustrations whose subject matter is set in the region or invokes the spirit of the region: Arizona, Colorado, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming.
The author’s place of residence is immaterial for this award.
