Publisher’s Weekly announced the nominees last month at Winter Institute 13 in Memphis, Tennessee.  These awards single out outstanding contributors to the bookselling industry.

“Publishers Weekly is proud to have sponsored these two leading industry awards for more than a quarter century,” said Cevin Bryerman, executive v-p, publisher of Publishers Weekly. “This year’s finalists for the 2018 PW Bookstore of the Year Award are representative of the diverse stores that have contributed to today’s indie bookstore revival. Many have deep roots in a specific region, but they have also had a big impact on the book industry well beyond those borders. Each has found creative solutions to making bookstores meaningful in a changing world.”

The PW Bookstore of the Year Award has been given every year for the past 25 years.

The awards will be presented at BookExpo in New York City.

Best of luck to University Book Store!
