Members of the Southern California Independent Booksellers Association (SCIBA) met last evening to celebrate the winners of its 2013 book prizes. As the Los Angeles Times reports, the recipient of this year’s T. Jefferson Parker Mystery Award is What the Heart Remembers, by Debra Ginsberg (NAL). Unfortunately, SoCal resident Ginsberg was not at the event to receive her commendation.
The other finalists in this same category were: Strawberry Yellow, by Naomi Hirahara (Prospect Park), and Suspect, by Robert Crais (Putnam). To see what books were vying for SCIBA awards in other categories, click here.
