D&M books shortlisted for Foreword INDIES Awards!

March 2017

D&M is excited to see four of our titles shortlisted for the 2016 Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Awards!

The Book of the Year Awards were founded in 1998 by Foreword Reviews magazine and recognize the best books published annually by independent publishers, independent authors and university presses across North America.

The National Parks of the United States: A Photographic Journey, by Australian author Andrew Thomas, is a finalist in the Photography category. This coffee-table book gathers together over 250 photos by a single photographer to showcase all fifty-nine parks of the US National Park Service.

Vancouver author and bee educator Lori Weidenhammer, who has already won a National Outdoor Book Award for Victory Gardens for Bees: A DIY Guide for Saving the Bees, is also finalist in the Home & Garden category. Victory Gardens for Bees investigates the growing problem of bee mortality and offers practical tips for planting beautiful bee-friendly gardens and outdoor spaces.

In the Cooking category, The Power of Pulses: Saving the World with Chickpeas, Favas and Lentils, is one of the shortlisted titles. Written by Salt Spring author and gardening expert Dan Jason, with recipes by award-winning cookbook authors Hilary Malone and Alison Malone Eathorne, The Power of Pulses is an inspiring do-it-yourself guide to growing and eating pulses and features fifty delicious vegetarian recipes.

The Performance, the fifth novel by Thetis Island author Ann Eriksson, has been shortlisted for the Fiction award. Eriksson, acclaimed for her deft explorations of social issues, takes on the theme of inequality by contrasting the strikingly different worlds that coexist within a single city: the wealthy circles of Manhattan's cultural elite and the stark existence of those who struggle to survive from day to day.

Finalists for the Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Awards were handpicked by Foreword Reviews editors from over two thousand entries. Winners in each category--along with Editor’s Choice winners, and Foreword’s INDIE Publisher of the Year--will be announced during the 2017 American Library Association Annual Conference in Chicago on June 24, 2017.
