UWI Press books recognised
The University of the West Indies Press is pleased to announce that The First Black Slave Society: Britain’s Barbarity Time in Barbados, 1636-1876 by Hilary McD Beckles; Tell My mother I Gone To Cuba: Stories of Early Twentieth-Century Migration from Barbados by Sharon Milagro Marshall; and The UWI Gender Journey: Recollections and Reflections by Joycelin Massiah, Elsa Leo-Rhynie and Barbara Bailey have been recognised as finalists in the nineteenth annual Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Awards.
Foreword Reviews—an independent media company—hosts its annual awards programme as part of its mission to discover, review and share the best books from small, university, and indie publishers (and authors). Finalists represent the best books published in 2016 based on reviews from Foreword’s editors of over 2,200 individual titles spread across 65 categories.
“Choosing finalists for the INDIES is always the highlight of our year, but the choice was more difficult this time around due to the high quality of submissions,” said Victoria Sutherland, publisher of Foreword Reviews. “Each new book award season proves again how independent publishers are the real innovators in the industry.” Read more
