Today, Allison Tubman is pleased to announce The McDonalds has been recognized as a finalist in the 17th annual Foreword Reviews’ INDIEFAB Book of the Year Awards. Here is the complete list: indiefab.forewordreviews.com/finalists/2014.
Each year, Foreword Reviews shines a light on a select group of indie publishers, university presses, and self-published authors whose work stands out from the crowd.
In the next three months, a panel of more than 100 volunteer librarians and booksellers will determine the winners in 63 categories based on their experience with readers and patrons.
“After 17 years, our awards program has become synonymous with quality because our editors set such a high bar on the finalist round, which makes it especially tough for the judges who select the winners,” said Victoria Sutherland, publisher of Foreword Reviews. “In every genre, our judges will find an interesting, high-quality selection of books culled from this year’s entries.”
“The nomination for this award is so appreciated. To know that ‘The McDonalds’ is receiving this type of recognition, and is slowly making its way across North America is more than I could have imagined. I had a dream to get my family’s story out to as many people as possible, to let others know about the fascinating culture that they clung to for decades. Foreword Reviews is helping me exceed my goals, and share this remarkable way of life, which is soon to be lost.” –Allison Tubman writes in regard to her nomination.
Foreword Reviews will celebrate the winners during a program at the American Library Association Annual Conference in San Francisco on Friday, June 26 at 6 p.m. at the Pop Top Stage in the exhibit hall. Everyone is welcome. The Editor’s Choice Prize for Fiction, Nonfiction, and Foreword Reviews’ 2014 INDIEFAB Publisher of the Year Award will also be announced during the presentation.
