The Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association (PNBA) is a non-profit association of independent bookstores from five Northwest states, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Alaska. The Association produces educational and promotional events and materials for its members and offers literacy, free speech and author promotional vehicles through its member stores. Since 1965, our annual Book Awards have recognized such luminary figures in Northwest literature as Ivan Doig, Ursula LeGuin, David James Duncan, David Guterson, Jon Krakauer, Chuck Palahniuk, and Sherman Alexie. Many of these authors were honored by PNBA before they received national attention. A history of past winners of the Pacific Northwest Book Award can be viewed on the Book Awards homepage.
PNBA's Award Committee is comprised of nine volunteer booksellers from our member stores, throughout the region. Committee members considered more than 200 titles published during 2012 for a 2013 award.A complete list of titles nominated for the 2013 Awards can be found HERE.*
