Indie Awards 2014

narrowThe winner of the 6th Indie Awards has just been announced, with four category winners and an overall Book of the Year. As one of the member stores who participated in both the judging of the short listed fiction books, and as a voter in the awards, I am very happy with the result.

The Fiction Category and Overall Book of the Year is:

The Narrow Road to the Deep North by Richard Flanagan

The Debut Fiction category winner is Burial Rites by Hannah Kent

The Non-Fiction category winner is Girt by David Hunt

The Children’s category winner is Kissed by the Moon by Alison Lester.

 

These are all very good books, and I was thrilled that Richard Flanagan won the overall Indie. The award is voted on by Independent booksellers around Australia and represents books the booksellers loved and enjoyed selling in the previous year.
We have stock of all of the books in store.  (The picture below is of Richard Flanagan)
