Independent Reading

Have a book group that likes to read outside the box? Look at the 2012 Independent Publisher Book Awards for some intriguing selections. This year included a new category, Visionary Fiction.

There are some other categories that book group selectors should take a closer look at as well: Performing Arts, Architecture, and Anthologies. The popular fiction and literary fiction have always provided titles for thought provoking discussions. The Visionary Fiction titles look especially promising. This fairly new genre is defined by its shifting viewpoints, complex plots, and other mind bending elements. The winner this year is A Brief Moment in Time by Jeane Watier who talks about her genre-bending novel here.

Don’t forget to take a look at the genre fiction and the award-winning young adult titles, too.
