Four HBG titles are finalists for the Southern Book Prize:

- Deep Run Roots by Vivian Howard (Little, Brown and Company) in Cooking

Formerly known as the SIBA Book Award, the Southern Book Prize features an expanded list of categories–including seven different fiction and three nonfiction categories. Finalists were chosen by Southern independent booksellers from the long list ballot. The finalist titles will be sent to juried panels of booksellers, who will then decide on the winners in each category. Winners will be announced on July 4.
