Two more IPPY Awards for Hub City Press
Helen Correll's "Middlewood Journal" and Hub City's anthology "Literary Dogs & Their South Carolina Writers" have won silver medals in the 2013 IPPY Awards, which recognize the best books of the year by a North American independent press.
"Middlewood" is a winner in the Nature/Environment/Ecology category, and "Literary Dogs" is a winner in the Animal/Pets category. Twelve of Hub City's titles have now received IPPY Awards.
Launched in 1996, the Independent Publisher Book Awards are designed to bring increased recognition to the deserving but often unsung titles published by independent authors and publishers. Established as the first unaffiliated awards program open exclusively to independents, the "IPPYs" recognize hundreds of the year's best books, bringing them to the attention of booksellers, buyers, librarians, and book lovers. The IPPY Awards contest is among the largest and most recognized book awards events in the world, open to all independent, university, small press, and self-publishers who produce books intended for the North American market.
Gold, silver and bronze medals are awarded to winners in 72 fiction and non-fiction subject categories.
