To be nominated for the 2020 New England Book Award a title must either be about New England, set in New England, or be by an author residing in New England. It can be a hardcover, paperback, or a re-issue, but it must have been published between 9/1/19 and 8/31/20. The winner is picked by the vote of independent booksellers of New England.
This year's winners were announced September 23, 2020 at the annual Fall Conference (virtual this year rather than in-person) of the New England Independent Booksellers Association of which Storybook Cove has proudly been a member for 30 years.
