The New Atlantic Independent Booksellers Association has selected Europa Editions for its Book of the Year Award. While the award is usually given to a single title, this year the committee decided to honor a publisher. According to Lucy Kogler, chair of the awards committee, “Each of Europa’s books is an artistic, original treasure that we are thrilled to place in our stores.”
“It is an honor for Europa Editions and a tribute to our authors,” Europa publisher Kent Carroll said upon the announcement. “I’ve been publishing Jane Gardam since my Carroll & Graf days, and I’m now privileged to also publish the likes of Elena Ferrante, Muriel Barbery, Steve Erickson, Damon Galgut, and Jean-Claude Izzo.”
The NAIBA award will be presented to Europa Editions at the organization’s annual awards banquet, to be held October 1 in Somerset, NJ.
