The Library Partners Press Awards (to be renamed later?) will be administered with help from book publishing professionals including librarians, bookstore owners, reviewers, designers, publicity managers, editors, and LPP Board members.
The winners of LPP Awards (cumulatively valued at ~$5000) will receive full suites of editorial and design support and services, turning otherwise unpublished manuscripts into magnificent monographs, solidifying the books’ (and the authors’) enduring appeal and credibility. Plus, we’ll host a launch party, to which everyone’s invited.
Seriously, it’ll be a fun party, but you have to play to win: meet us at the intersection of books, libraries, and publishing.
