Hart's book among finalists for award

The Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance (SIBA) has recently released the finalists for the 2007 SIBA Book Award, honoring the best of Southern literature as chosen by Southern independent booksellers. The awards will be presented at SIBA's Fall Trade Show in Atlanta on Sept. 28.

Each year, hundreds of booksellers across the South vote on their favorite hand-sell books of the year. These are the Southern books they have most enjoyed selling to customers; the ones that they couldn't stop talking about.
