SaskBooks and its Board of Directors are pleased to announce the creation of an award to recognise commitment, leadership, excellence and innovation, and mentorship by individuals or by individual book publishers who operate(d) in the publishing industry in Saskatchewan.
Book publishing has been an active part of Saskatchewan’s business landscape and creative economy since 1905. Over the years, Saskatchewan has been home to publishers of every kind of book imaginable. This Award was created to recognize the hard work, commitment, leadership, and business innovation that has kept Saskatchewan publishers at the forefront of the publishing industry in Canada.
SaskBooks is Saskatchewan’s creative industry association for book publishers. Incorporated nearly 30 years ago as a provincial agency to represent the then six publishers in the province, SaskBooks now enjoys a membership of 47 book publishers. The books our publishers produce regularly win awards and turn heads.
Join SaskBooks and the Saskatchewan Book Awards on Saturday, 28 April in Regina for the first presentation of the Recognition for the Advancement of Publishing in Saskatchewan.
