ABA annual awards

Through a series of annual awards the Australian Booksellers Association celebrates the work of Australian booksellers and the books they love to sell. The annual ABA Bookseller awards recognise the unique role played by booksellers in distributing learning, ideas, and literature to communities and the Booksellers' Choice awards recognise the Australian new release books our booksellers have selected as their favourite hand-sells.

The ABA is thrilled to announce the winners of the ABA Book of the Year and the Bookseller of the Year 2022 Awards.
