2024 Midwest Book Awards

I’m so excited to announce that Bass Reeves: Legendary Lawman of the Wild West has been selected as a finalist in the Nonfiction-Children’s and Young Adult Category of the 34th annual Midwest Book Awards! 

The Midwest Book Awards are presented by the Midwest Independent Publishers Association, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting independent publishers in the Midwest. The awards are open to all books published in the Midwest in the previous year. 

MiPA founders organized the first Midwest Book Awards in 1989, and today the Midwest Book Awards is one of the longest running literary recognition programs in the country. Judges for the prestigious literary program are booksellers, university staff, and librarians who are subject matter experts and collectively hail from each of MiPA’s twelve states.

Gold winners in the Midwest Book Awards will be announced in person at the Midwest Book Awards Gala held on June 22, 2024 at the Mall of America in Minneapolis.
