ForeWord Reviews has announced their finalists for the 2011 Book of the Year Awards and two Archaia titles have scored nominations in the Graphic Novel category! Jim Henson’s Tale of Sand by Jim Henson, Jerry Juhl, and Ramón K. Pérez and Rust: Visitor in the Field by Royden Lepp were each honored.
ForeWord‘s Book of the Year Awards program was designed for booksellers and librarians to share in the process of discovering distinctive books across a number of genres with judgments based on their own authority and on patron interests. The 2011 Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Honorable Mention Award Winners will be announced at ALA Anaheim on Saturday, June 23.
