Soul Jar: Thirty-one Fantastical Tales by Disabled Authors, edited by Annie Carl, Forest Avenue Press, was selected by attendees as the winning title in the BuzzBooks contest at the 2023 Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association Tradeshow, held last week, in Portland, OR.
Punch cards were handed out to booksellers and librarians who then visited supporting exhibitors for quick-pitches on nine participating titles across a variety of genres.
Attendee booth stops were verified with a stamp from the attending reps and, once all stamps were tallied, participants cast a vote for the book they were most excited to recommend to their customers and patrons.
Soul Jar was announced as the winner at the Signature Dish author dinner and three voting participants were awarded $100 cash prizes.
Soul Jar is a Best of the Northwest selection to be featured in PNBA’s annual Give Books holiday catalog, promoted by 80+ PNBA member stores throughout November and December.
