2019 MIPA Book Awards Gala
Publishers based in the Midwest were invited to enter the 29th Annual Midwest Book Awards competition for excellence in books published during the 2018 calendar year. The awards recognize creativity in content and execution, overall book quality, and the book’s unique contribution to its subject area.
The Midwest Independent Publishing Association (MIPA) has sponsored the book awards since 1990.
Midwest Book Awards honor the publishers in the 12-state Midwest publishing community who are producing quality work. Award recognition helps publishers and authors succeed in today’s competitive publishing industry.
