First awarded in 2011: “The award grew out of my distaste for most literary prizes,” explained Melville House’s Dennis Johnson. “The point is usually to laud some individual or book that doesn’t really need the stroking.

The IBCA is good for the author, good for the bookseller, and good for the publisher, and so it’s good for art and industry.”2013 Indie Booksellers’ Choice Awards Winners
