SIBA Book Award 1999-2013

from SIBA Book Award and wikipedia accessed 7/6/13.

SIBA Book Award is an American South literary award given by the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance (SIBA), first awarded in 1999. Nominated books must be southern in nature or by a southern author, have been published the previous year, and have been nominated by a SIBA-member bookstore or one of their customers. Voting categories include fiction, non-fiction, poetry, cooking and children's literature. The award was originally called the "SEBA" Book Award.
The first awards were given in 1999.  From 1999 through 2007 winners were chosen by popular vote through an online voting mechanism. Starting in 2008 winners were chosen from the list of finalists by a jury of SIBA booksellers, instead of by popular vote.
