Entries Now Open
Publishers based in the Midwest are invited to enter the 28th Annual Midwest Book Awards competition for excellence in books published during the 2017 calendar year. The awards recognize creativity in content and execution, overall book quality, and the book’s unique contribution to its subject area.

See You in the Fall!
Thanks to all for great attendance and interest in the meetings this year. We’re all taking a meeting break for the summer. Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of the month, September through March. Come at 6:30 p.m. for social hour and networking; program starts at 7:00 p.m. Our December meeting is the holiday party. The vendor fair is the April meeting, and, in May, we host the Midwest Book Awards Gala and Awards Presentation.
Book Award Seals
Gold (winner) and silver (finalist) award seals are available for purchase to qualifying authors and publishers. These seals are foil stamped, come in rolls of 250 or as digital files, and are great promotional tools.
