2016 Pat Conroy Southern Book Prize Winners
MosquitolandSerafina and the Black Cloak
Poppy's Pants Young Adult Prize Winner
Poppy's Pants Youngster's Prize Winner

The best in southern literature, from the people who would know...Southern Independent (and independently minded!) Booksellers! Formerly the "SIBA Book Award," the newly reborn Pat Conroy Southern Book Prize features an expanded list of categories, inspired by the tastes and inclinations of Southern readers. Nominated by booksellers and their customers, vetted by bookstores and selected by a jury of Southern booksellers, these are the Southern books that Southern bookstores were most passionate about, and inspired the most "you've got to read this" moments and "hand sell" moments in stores across the South. The nine winners, including the Poppy's Pants Young Adult Prize and the Poppy's Pants Youngster's Prize, were chosen from a field of nearly forty finalists. Together, they represent the best of Southern literature, from the people who would know -- Southern indie booksellers.

It's based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne, and John Tiffany. It was always difficult being Harry Potter, and it isn't much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children. While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.
