Each spring, based on the results of your votes, the NCIBA presents The Golden Poppies, the Northern California Independent Booksellers Awards. Awards are given for books published for the first time in the prior year and written or illustrated by a person residing in Northern California (a residency exception is made for an author whose book is nominated in the Regional Title category).
Bookseller committees review all book submissions and choose finalists in each genre category.
Owners and all employees of member stores are then invited to vote on these finalists, selecting the books they have read that they most admire.
Winners are announced by the NCIBA at the annual Spring Workshop (March 24, 2019). (Promotional posters for winning titles will be available.)
 
Cast one vote per genre category - feel free to skip those you're not familiar with. 
 
The deadline to vote is 9 am, February 17th, 2019
